General comments:
Extremely Local resident.

During 2015, examples caught at Hexton Chalk Pit nature reserve seemed to indicate possible residency there. The other modern report is from a garden light trap in Letchworth in 2015 and presumably relates to a vagrant example. The record is supported by a photograph and is undoubtedly correct. In Middlesex, the three historic records are from Ruislip, Hounslow and Isleworth.

Retained Specimen / Photograph will be Required.
