Alsophila aescularia

([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775) 1663 / 70.245

General comments:
Widespread resident.

Expected everywhere, but avoiding the far south-eastern zone of the City of London/Isle of Dogs. It is often one of the first moths that people notice in the year, as it is attracted to house lights and is often found resting on windows or walls.

Recorded in 35 (85%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1887.
Last Recorded in 2024.
