Crocidosema plebejana

(Zeller, 1847)49.261

As a UK resident this is a coastal species but it is also known to be a regular immigrant from Europe. Unlikely to have a permanent presence in our region and the spread of records (and sighting dates) is more suggestive of migrant activity or wanderers.

Recorded in 13 (17%) of 78 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1983.
Last Recorded in 2022.
