Life history: There is a controversial debate as to whether or not this is a separate species to Ash Pug or the same species feeding on different food plants. In Suffolk, it has a mainly coastal distribution suggesting most or all of those recorded are of the form that feeds on Sea Buckthorn or Tamarisk.
Identification: The forewings are dark brown or grey with few distinguishing markings. The white tornal spot can be indistinct or absent, especially in melanic forms
