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.

Grapholita jungiella

(Clerck, 1759)

Wingspan 10-13 mm.

A springtime species, flying in April and May in the north; in the south a later second generation also occurs.

The moths fly low over the foodplants in sunshine and have conspicuously white hindwings.

The larvae feed on bitter vetch (Lathyrus linifolius) and bush vetch (Vicia sepium), spinning the leaves together or living inside the seed pods.

It is a reasonably common species over much of the British Isles.
