Depressaria daucella: 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.

A fairly distinctive species with its chestnut-brown ground colour and darker streaking along the wing venations, its distribution covers England, southern Scotland and Ireland, and it is generally common.

The adults overwinter, being on the wing from September through to April.

The larvae feed on the stems and flowers of water-dropwort (Oenanthe spp.) and related plants.
