Small Mottled Willow Spodoptera exigua (Hübner, 1808)
Status .....A fairly common migrant to southern areas of the UK, but much rarer inland. In Nottinghamshire, this Small Mottled Willow tends to be recorded only during good migrant years such as 2006 and most recently in 2015. We have just one record from Eakring in September 2006. The moth in the top two photographs, was trapped by members of the Lound Moth Group.
