Epiblema turbidana

(Treitschke, 1835)49.290

An uncommon moth nationally with very few sightings from our region. Its apparent absence from Berkshire is odd because that is where most of our records of the equally scarce macro-moth Butterbur Hydraecia petasitis come from, which uses the same food-plant.

Retained Specimen / Photograph will be Required.

Recorded in 2 (3%) of 78 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 2008.
Last Recorded in 2010.
(Data up to end 2022)
