49.325 .... B&F 1255
Cydia ulicetana (Haworth, 1811) ..... Formerly known as Cydia succedana
Status .....Usually very common at sandy or heathland sites, where it flies around stands of Gorse during the day, often settling for short periods within the flowers before flying again. Certainly a very widespread, yet often under-recorded moth over much of Nottinghamshire. Many thanks to Dave Morton and Andy Ashley, for providing the darker specimen showed below right.
Photographed at Warsop Main Pit Top April 2007
