(Staudinger, 1883) 377 / 52.009

Norfolk status
New to Britain in 1926 near Southampton, the species has a two year life cycle, and is remarkable in that moths are rarely seen or bred in odd years, appearing only in even years.

Day-flying species, and like many of the clearwings with the recent popular use of pheromone lures, this species appears to be more widespread than previously thought.

Pheromone attractants: SAL (MYO+TIP)
Pheromone activity times: all day Peak 1pm-5pm.
[available at ALS]

Two new for Norfolk in 2022 both to SAL lure at Sporle. (M. Kerr, 10/07/22) and at Mundford (11/07/22, Oliver Richings)
