Barred Straw
Gandaritis pyraliata

([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775) 1758 / 70.093
=Eulithis pyraliata

General comments:
Widespread resident.

The Barred Straw is a familiar site at moth traps across the two counties, but it avoids "London Proper" - the stray map dot in that area represents the light trap at London Zoo, on the north edge of the Regent's Park where it was evidently a resident in 2013. Care should be taken by newcomers to the study of moths not to confuse it with the far less common Spinach.

Recorded in 33 (80%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1887.
Last Recorded in 2023.
