Main: (Notodontidae / Notodontinae)
71.022 [B&F: 2009] Maple Prominent (Ptilodon cucullina) ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)

 

Notes: Local in broad-leaved woodland, scrub, hedgerows and gardens throughout much of south-eastern England. A moth with a curious distribution in our area, completely absent from the New Forest and the Isle of Wight but thinly distributed from the south-east of Hampshire up to the north and north-east. Wingspan 37-46 mm. The most likely confusion species is Coxcomb Prominent P. capucina, which see for differences. Larva feeds on Field Maple, mainly on young trees, over-wintering as a pupa.
