Denisia albimaculea
Pied Tubic

(Haworth, 1828)638a / 28.005
Norfolk status
Rare species found in woods, parkland and gardens throughout England.

Confusion with the now extinct D. augustella has led to uncertain distribution data.

The larvae feed within the bark of various trees including European Larch, Field Maple, Lime, Apple and Elm.

New for West Norfolk in 2017 when a male and female were found at West Walton. Two specimens were collected sheltering in bark grooves of a hollow Ash tree.
