1421 Large Tabby (Aglossa pinguinalis) (Linnaeus, 1758) - (Pyralidae / Pyralinae)

 

Notes: Local around farm buildings, barns, warehouses and granaries throughout the British Isles. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight probably overlooked due to its association with farm buildings, with less than ten records in most years, but over 20 records in 2005. Wingspan 30-40 mm. Very variable in size, but not really similar to any other British moth. Larva feeds on detritus and animal waste.
