Appendix A: (Erebidae / Scoliopteryginae)
72.0011 [B&F: 2471] Angled Gem (Anomis sabulifera) Guenée, 1852

 

Suspected rare immigrant from Africa, one caught at sugar in an orchard at Goudhurst, Kent in September 1935 was presumed to have been accidentally introduced, but a migratory origin cannot be ruled out. Not recorded in Hampshire or on the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 32-38 mm. Larva feeds on Hibiscus and Cotton, causing sufficient damage to be a serious pest in some areas; no evidence of breeding in the UK.
