Dark Brocade
Mniotype adusta

(Esper, 1790) 2250 / 73.238
=Blepharita adusta

General comments:
Extremely local resident, declining rapidly. Probably now extinct in Hertfordshire.

The Dark Brocade is something of a mystery moth. It can be abundant where it is found, but places where it does exist are few and far between. Nationally, it is now regarded as belonging to the 'Vulnerable' category of the IUCN Red List and this seems likely to be entirely justifiable.

Recorded in 21 (51%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1933.
Last Recorded in 2023.
