2424 Sallow Nycteoline (Nycteola degenerana) (Hübner, 1796) - (Noctuidae / Chloephorinae)


Notes: Very rare immigrant (less than 10 previous UK records) from mainland Europe, appearing in southern England on three occasions, but details are vague. In Hampshire, one individual in very fresh condition, now in the British Museum (Natural History) London, is labelled 'New Forest, 1905, E Morris', with no further details as to the circumstances of its origin. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 29-32 mm. It is unlikely that records of this species will be accepted unless the specimen is retained for examination. Larva feeds on Sallow and Willow, no evidence of breeding in the UK.
