73.318 [B&F: 2083a] Woods's Dart (Agrotis graslini) Rambur, 1848


Local on coastal sand-dunes on Jersey, where it has been known in the area since 1995. Not yet recorded on the British mainland. Wingspan 35-45 mm. Most resembles Sand Dart A. ripae, and can also be confused with poorly marked examples of Archer's Dart A. vestigialis and Spalding's Dart A. herzogi; the pure white hindwing is a good indicator of Wood's Dart. Larva feeds on Tuberous Hawk's-beard, Devil's-bit Scabious, Small Scabious, Ribwort Plantain, Greater Plantain and Dock.
