Beautiful Brocade
Lacanobia contigua

([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775) 2156 / 73.265

Morley's Final Catalogue: Apparently very rare indeed. Not taken (Mr. Waller's Waldringfield record proved to be erroneous) since Miller and Garrett found it at 'Bentley' before 1890: though said by Harwood to also occur close to the River Stour at Dedham in Essex, i.e. five miles further south.

Recent Suffolk Status: Uncertain. No records.

Life history: Single-brooded.

Identification: Light brocade is larger with a clear band across the wing. Pale-shouldered brocade lacks the diagonal white band.

Habitat: Heathland, woodland.

Retained Specimen / Photograph will be Required.
