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.

Angoumois Grain Moth Sitotroga cerealella

(Olivier, 1789)

This adventive species is sometimes imported accidentally with various types of grain and can be subsequently found at large in warehouses that hold this kind of material.

The examples shown from Devon were reared from a bag of Carmargue red rice bought from a shop in Bovey Tracey, by Jeremy Barker who found adults and larvae within.

The species now has an almost cosmopolitan distribution including most of Europe.
