Sciota hostilis

(Stephens, 1834)1447 / 62.016

Davey, P., 2009: A very rare species recorded from a handful of counties in south-eastern and western England, the larva feeding on aspen (Populus tremula). In Dorset the moth has been seen once and, given its place of capture plus the south-easterly airflow from France, it is likely to have been an immigrant from central France: Durlston, at MV light on 26 June 2004 (S Nash).

Retained Specimen / Photograph will be Required.
