Scorched Wing
Plagodis dolabraria

(Linnaeus, 1767) 1904 / 70.224

General comments:
Widespread resident - Hertfordshire; Extremely local resident - Middlesex.

The reason why this clearly very widespread and common moth should be, apparently, absent from most of Middlesex is unexplained. Skinner (1998) notes that males dominate light trap samples; random sampling suggests that this is indeed the case in Hertfordshire.

Recorded in 30 (73%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1887.
Last Recorded in 2024.
