(Linnaeus, 1758) 1995 / 71.003

Morley's Final Catalogue: Sufficiently frequent everywhere throughout east Suffolk on poplar and sallow, from Felixstowe and Ipswich where it is occasionally seen at light, through Monks Soham and Beccles to Gorleston. Remarkably, in west Suffolk, it would seem 'not met with in any stage' (Nurse, in lit. 1911).

Recent Status: A common species and widely distributed in recent years, including records from west Suffolk.

Identification: Compare with the similar Feline at coastal locations.

Habitat: Woodland containing Poplar and Willow.

Recorded in 46 (79%) of 58 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1940.
