White-pinion Spotted
Lomographa bimaculata

(Fabricius, 1775) 1957 / 70.279

General comments:
Widespread but local resident and declining.

The White-pinion Spotted fluctuates wildly in number with periods of scarcity lasting several years and then periods when it is very common; however, it seems to be truly absent from a significant number of former sites in the two counties. Although the caterpillar apparently also feeds on hawthorns, light trapping frequently reveals a very strong association with Blackthorn thickets and hedgerows.

Recorded in 31 (76%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1887.
Last Recorded in 2024.
