False Mocha
Cyclophora porata

(Linnaeus, 1767) 1679 / 70.035

General comments:
Very rare immigrant, perhaps former resident.

As a resident, this species is in serious decline at the national level. Historic Hertfordshire records seem to affect the central area of the county and some, possibly, indicate former resident populations; those from Middlesex undoubtedly refer to immigrant, as do all recent records.

Retained Specimen / Photograph will be Required.

Recorded in 6 (15%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1887.
Last Recorded in 2006.
