Pandemis dumetana: 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.

Pandemis dumetana

(Treitschke, 1835)


Wingspan c. 20mm.

A rather local species, with a somewhat scattered distribution between South-east and Northern England. It occurs both in damp fenland habitats, and drier, chalky habitats.

The polyphagous larva feeds on a range of plants and trees, either in a rolled leaf, or sometimes in the flowers.

Adult moths fly during July and August and are attracted to light.
