Main: (Crambidae / Spilomelinae)
63.032 [B&F: 1389] Udea fulvalis (Hübner, [1809])

 

Notes: An immigrant to southern England from mainland Europe, in some years arriving in sufficient numbers to breed and appears to becoming more regular. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight a casual immigrant which appears to have established itself since the mid 1990s at Freshwater and in the coastal strip from Christchurch eastwards to Sway, where moths can be found in some numbers at Buddleia flowers soon after dusk. Wingspan 24-29 mm. Similar in structure, size and markings to U. prunalis, but differs in the dull fulvous brown coloration of the forewing, which is slaty grey in U. prunalis, and in the wider submedian sinus of second line [Goater]. Larva feeds on Black Horehound, Meadow Clary, Red Campion and White Campion.
