Eudonia delunella: 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.

Eudonia delunella

(Stainton, 1849)


Wingspan 17-18 mm.

Rather a local species, occurring in various widely scattered wooded areas, the distinctive black and white patches on the forewing help to distinguish it.

The caterpillar feeds on lichens and mosses on tree trunks.

The adults fly in July and August, and can be attracted to light.
