63.051 [B&F: 1400] Antigastra catalaunalis (Duponchel, 1833)

 

Very rare immigrant to southern England from southern Europe. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight just two records prior to 2006, one at Freshwater in 1958 and one in Southampton in 2000; in 2006, a year of significant migrant lepidoptera activity, eight individuals were reported. Three more have been recorded since (to 2018), all from the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 19-22 mm. Nascia cilialis has somewhat similar coloration but much broader wings [Goater]. Larva feeds on Purple Toadflax, no evidence of breeding in the UK.

Update: Status review, December 2019.
