General comments
Widespread resident.

This is a relatively distinctive species, at least at the start of its flight period when few other pugs are on the wing to cause confusion. It is very common in garden light traps.

Recorded in 37 (90%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1900.
Last Recorded in 2023.
