Callisto denticulella - 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.

Callisto denticulella

(Thunberg, 1794)

Wingspan c.11 mm.

Distributed throughout much of the British Isles, Callisto denticulella frequents orchards and gardens where apple trees are present, flying in May and June.

The young larvae mine the leaves of the foodplant, apple (Malus), causing a gallery followed by a semi-translucent blotch on the upper surface of the leaf. It then vacates this and folds the edge of a leaf down to feed within, usually twice, before pupating externally among detritus.
