Cnephasia conspersana - 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.

Cnephasia conspersana

Douglas, 1846

Wingspan c. 15-20mm

This mainly coastal species is reasonably well-distributed around the British coastline, though less common in Scotland.

The larvae feed on the flowers of a number of different plants of the Rosaceae and Compositae families. During June, they spin the petals together and feed within.

Adult moths appear in July, and are attracted to light, though they can also be disturbed during the day or found resting on fence posts.
