Tetheella fluctuosa

(Hubner, [1803]) 65.012

Only 3 records, of singletons at light. The national distribution is very disjointed and it is largely rare or absent to the east and north of our region. It is locally common in counties immediately to the south, and these individuals are most likely to have been strays from that area, or from the Gloucestershire populations centred around the Forest of Dean. However, the possibility of colonisation cannot be ruled out.

Retained Specimen / Photograph will be Required.
