Bohemannia pulverosella - Distribution map

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.

Bohemannia pulverosella

(Stainton, 1849)

Wingspan 6-7 mm.

Fairly well distributed in the British Isles, the larvae create a distinctive blotch mine in the leaves of apple (Malus) during June and July. The larva cuts an exit hole on the underside of the leaf, which distuingishes the mine from that of Ectoedemia atricollis.

The adults, which fly in May, are dull brownish with a speckled appearance, especially noticeable near the wingtips. They have a yellowish head and whitish eyecaps.
