Please note that the NBN Gateway map service has been terminated as of 1 April 2017.

As soon as a replacement map service is available, distribution maps will hopefully appear here again.

In the meantime, you can get some idea of distribution from the NBN Atlas website.

Antispila treitschkiella

(Fischer von Röslerstamm, 1843)

Wingspan c. 6 mm.

This tiny species occurs locally in parts of southern England, flying in June and July.

The larva makes a distinctive blotch mine in a leaf of dogwood (Cornus sanguinea), rather like that of Antispila metallella, later cutting out a neat oval blotch to form a case in which it subsequently lives amongst leaf litter on the ground.

The larval mines can be located from August until early October.
