2417 Brixton Beauty (Acontia nitidula) (Fabricius, 1787) - (Noctuidae / Acontiinae)


Notes: Occurrence in the British Isles unconfirmed. This native of Asia is included on the British list on the basis of a single specimen taken by Mr Plastead, a notorious dealer in rarities, at Brixton, Surrey in September 1829, almost certainly deliberately imported. No evidence of breeding in the UK.
