    ErebidaeABH 72.062 B&F 2482

    A nationally scarce species that inhabits damp woodland, shady hedgerows and open heathland. It will come to flowers, sugar and light. Listed as occasional and local by Turner (1955), it remains so, with most records from the south and west of the county. A handful of records in most years, sometimes none at all. Usually in small numbers, though there have been double-figure counts at Hurlstone Point and Great Breach Wood.

    Adult Verification Grade: 2
