The Forester

    Adscita statices

    ZygaenidaeABH 54.002 B&F 163

    A much-declined moth in Somerset, in keeping with the national trend.  Still regularly recorded from Priddy Mineries.  Other relatively recent sites include Ham Hill (last record 2015), GB Gruffy (2012), Hatch Hill (2011), Bannerdown (2010), Blackmoor (2008) and Ubley Warren (2007).  This moth needs considerable care to distinguish it from other forester species.
