Epinotia rubiginosana: 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.

Epinotia rubiginosana

(Herrich-Schäffer, 1851)


Wingspan c. 14mm.

This species is generally distributed throughout mainland Britain and is reasonably common in places.

The larvae feed between spun needles of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) and stone pine (P. pinea) during September and October.

Flying in June, the adults can sometimes be seen flitting around the tops of pine trees in the late afternoon sunshine, but will come to light after dark.
