Scoliopteryx libatrix

(Linnaeus, 1758) 2469 / 72.001

General comments:
Widespread and usually common resident.

Hibernating adults are excluded from the flight chart, but they can of course be found throughout the winter in sheds, hollow trees and other places away from the frosts. There will be few places where the Herald is not present.

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