Mouse Moth Amphipyra tragopoginis (Clerck, 1759)
Status .....Quite a common and widespread moth, although there appear to be few records from sites east of the Trent Valley. There have been fewer reports of this moth from across the county over the past few years and it appears to have declined to a degree. This may or may not be down to the variations in the local weather conditions.
