General comments:
Vagrant.

Added to the county list on 11 August 2016 with an adult caught at Ware, with further records at Maple Lodge on 23 July 2018 and Welwyn Garden City on 6 August 2018 then a final report on 3rd June 2022 at Chorleywood, on the Buckinghamshire border. Separation from the ordinary Peacock moth can be quite tricky.
