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.

Pseudargyrotoza conwagana

(Fabricius, 1775)


Wingspan 11-15 mm.

The conspicuous yellow blotch identifies this colourful moth when at rest, and it can often be seen flying during the day around its main foodplant, ash (Fraxinus). The larvae also feed on privet (Ligustrum).

Flying during May to July, it is quite common through most of Britain.

With a wingspan of approx. 13mm, it is one of the smaller Tortricidae.
