Beautiful Golden Y
Autographa pulchrina

(Haworth, 1809) 2442 / 73.016

General comments:
Widespread but local resident.

The Beautiful Golden Y is probably present in most map squares in Hertfordshire, but the apparent scarcity in Middlesex is real. Both this and the Plain Golden Y frequently fly together in similar habitat, but whilst Plain Golden Y is in decline, the Beautiful Golden Y seems to be holding steady.

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