Treble-bar Aplocera plagiata (Linnaeus, 1758)
Status .....Very similar and almost identical visually to Lesser Treble-bar. In Treble-bar, the angle of the inner-most crossband is slightly more rounded towards the leading edge of the wing, than in Lesser Treble-bar. The two moths often occur at the same sites, but our maps would indicate that Treble-bar has a less northerly distribution.
