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.

Maple Pug Eupithecia inturbata

(Hübner, [1817])

Wingspan c.13-18 mm.

One of the smaller 'pug' moths, this species is relatively scarce, though distributed over the larger part of England and Wales.

It occupies a variety of wooded and semi-wooded habitats, and the larvae feed on the flowers of field maple (Acer campestris).

The adults are on the wing in July and August and come to light.
