72.030 [B&F: 2067] Jersey Tiger (Euplagia quadripunctaria) (Poda, 1761)

 

Notes: Nationally scarce (Nb) on sea cliffs, undercliffs, gardens, rough ground and hedgerows, in south-western England, predominantly coastal. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight this species became established on the Isle of Wight during the 1990s, and is now locally frequent there; individuals turn up on the mainland in small numbers, with 5 in 2004, 3 in 2008 and 3 in 2009, and colonisation along the south coast can perhaps be expected. Wingspan 52-65 mm. Unmistakable. Larva feeds on herbaceous plants such as Stinging Nettle, Hemp-agrimony, White Dead-nettle, Ribwort Plantain, Greater Plantain, Ground-ivy and Bramble.
