Paratalanta hyalinalis: 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.

Paratalanta hyalinalis

(Hübner, 1796)


Wingspan c.32 mm.

A relatively uncommon species, occurring in the southern counties of England, and flying in June and July. It resembles a number of other species in the same family, and care should be taken with the identification.

The larvae feed on common or black knapweed (Centaurea nigra), and great mullein (Verbascum thapsus).

The adults can be disturbed from vegetation during the day, and will come to light after dark.
