Pinion-streaked Snout
Schrankia costaestrigalis

(Stephens, 1834) 2484 / 72.061

General comments:
Widespread but very local resident.

Two examples of the Pinion-streaked Snout, caught on the Ashridge Estate on 24th July and 22nd August 1907, were reported as new to the county, though a worn example was also taken there in 1906 by the same captor, A. T. Goodson, who was unable to identify it until better examples were found in the next year (Gibbs, 1908). Foster (1937) repeats these records and the moth appears to be unreported again until 3rd August 1983, when it was caught at Green Tye, west of Bishops Stortford, by David Wilson. Today, it is widespread, but local in damp woodland and marshes in both counties. It has probably been overlooked, though in a few places it might well be a genuine newcomer?
