Minor Shoulder-knot
Brachylomia viminalis

(Fabricius, 1777) 2225 / 73.220

General comments:
Widespread but local resident.

The Minor Shoulder-knot is probably more widespread than records indicate, although the apparent absence from much of the north is probably genuine; most woodlands with either sallow or willow are likely to support it - those that contain damp areas are likely to produce the greatest number.

Recorded in 26 (63%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1887.
Last Recorded in 2023.
