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.

Slender Brindle Apamea scolopacina

(Esper, 1788)


Wingspan 32-36 mm.

A rather attractive species which does not tend to vary as much as its congeners.

Frequenting woodland habitats, it flies in July and August, and is locally distributed in the southern half of Britain, but absent further north.

The larval foodplants are a range of woodland grasses, including wood millet (Milium effusum) and wood-rushes (Luzula spp.).
