Mottled Rustic
Caradrina morpheus

(Hufnagel, 1766) 2387 / 73.092

General comments:
Widespread resident.

The Mottled Rustic is one of the more common 'brown and boring' moths in Hertfordshire, though it is never present in such large numbers as the Uncertain. The number of records per year in the database shows neither decline nor rise in population and it is a species that is expected in all trap samples across the area.

Recorded in 36 (88%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1887.
Last Recorded in 2023.
