73.300 [B&F: 2202] L-album Wainscot (Mythimna l-album) (Linnaeus, 1767)

 

Common immigrant from northern Europe, appearing in southern England, in most years arriving in sufficient numbers to breed. Has increased over the course of the last fifteen years and continues to extend its range northwards, probably as a result of the increase in temperatures in the region. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight a once scarce migrant which appears to have become established near Titchfield Haven, with scattered records elsewhere along the south coast and, increasingly, inland. Wingspan 34-40 mm. A relatively well-marked and distinctive wainscot. Larva feeds on Marram-grass.
