Rhopobota stagnana
Downland Bell

([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)1161 / 49.221

Morley’s Final Catalogue: Scarce and not recorded with us since it was taken on the south side of the river at Brandon before 1890 (Barrett, Tr. Norf. Soc. i, 55), till the Bishop found it in 1930 at Worlington.

Recent Status: A rare species in Suffolk that can be found in Breckland.

Life Style: This is a double brooded species that can be found between April and September. The larvae feed on Scabiosa and Succisa. The summer brood feeds on flowers and seeds and the autumn brood feeds on lower leaves and hibernates fully fed in a cocoon. Both broods pupate in a cocoon on the ground.

Identification: Another very variable species but usually showing discrete dark fasciae on a paler striated ground colour. More Info
