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.

Tinagma ocnerostomella

(Stainton, 1850)


Wingspan c.9mm.

Found locally in parts of south-east England, the adults of this species have fuscous colouration lightly speckled with white scales. They are active in the daytime, in June and July, flying around the foodplant and rest with the front of the body raised.

The larval foodplant is viper's bugloss (Echium vulgare), and the larvae feed inside the stems, on the pith.
