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.

Ash Bud Moth Prays fraxinella

(Bjerkander, 1784)


Wingspan 14-18 mm.

A common species over much of Britain, the larvae of this species, as the English name suggests, feed on the buds of ash (Fraxinus excelsior) in its later stages. As a smaller larva, it mines a leaf.

The adult is on the wing from June to July, although a plainer, darker form is often found into August.
