Lobesia occidentis

Falkovitsh, 197049.181

A rare species found in a few parts of the southern UK. Two records from south Bucks, one of them old but the other fairly recent (and dissected to confirm), are the only known sightings from our area. The larval food-plant Wood Spurge Euphorbia amygdaloides is found in woodland across our region so there may be other locations where the moth could be hiding.

Retained Specimen / Photograph will be Required.
