Mythimna straminea

(Treitschke, 1825) 2197 / 73.294

Norfolk status
Widespread.
Fens, marshes, coastal fens and reedbeds on the Broads.

The most likely confusion species are Common Wainscot and Smoky Wainscot. The straight termen, pointed apex and row of black postmedian dots on the forewing can help identify.

Another identification aid is the white and brown double striped collar, giving the illusion the moth is wearing a headband, if viewed from the front!

Recorded in 63 (85%) of 74 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1873.
Last Recorded in 2024.
