Adoxophyes orana

(Fischer von Röslerstamm, 1834)49.041

Another adventive species from Europe, first found in Kent in 1950. Now fairly widespread across the southern half of the UK, but rarely seen. A single record from Bucks is so far the only one from our area and that fits with a similar pattern of sightings in counties further east.
