73.197 [B&F: 2260] Dotted Chestnut (Conistra rubiginea) ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)

 

Notes: Nationally scarce (Nb) in woodland, wooded heathland, farmland and hedgerows in parts of England, most commonly in the south-west; increasing. In Hampshire this species appears to have become much more widespread in recent years, though still at low density: up until the 1970s, its stronghold was on the Bagshot Sands area in the north-east, but recently there have been records from across the county. On the Isle of Wight, it remains distinctly uncommon, but two in 2009 hint at an increase. Wingspan 34-40 mm. Larva feeds on Apple.
