Twin-spotted Wainscot

    Lenisa geminipuncta

    NoctuidaeABH 73.139 B&F 2370

    A reedbed specialist, only occasionally wandering away from its habitat.  Most frequently recorded from Shapwick Heath, Ham Wall, Steart Marshes, Berrow and the Gordano valley.  Used to be found regularly around Bridgwater, an area that is currently somewhat under-recorded, and it surely must occur at Westhay where the last record dates from 1992.

    Adult Verification Grade: 2
