73.093 [B&F: 2387a] Clancy's Rustic (Caradrina kadenii) (Freyer, [1836])

 

Notes: An increasingly common immigrant from southern Europe, appearing as a migrant in southern England for the first time at New Romney, Kent, on 3 October 2002. Can now be expected in numbers along the south coast, mostly in September and October, but occasionally as early as May. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight, a scarce but increasingly common immigrant. After the first record in 2003, 2005 saw an exceptional 24 records along the south coast, and it may not be long before this species colonises the county, although to date no evidence has been found of breeding in our area or elsewhere in the UK; on the continent, the larva feeds on various herbaceous plants. However, two individuals at the same locality in north Hampshire, would seem to defy coincidence, and may be indicative of residence at low density here and elsewhere. Wingspan 28-34mm.
