Great Brocade Eurois occulta (Linnaeus, 1758)
Status .....A very rare migrant to Nottinghamshire. It is a sedentary resident in the central and western Highlands of Scotland, but moths of presumed Scandinavian origin, occur as migrants to southern and eastern counties of UK during August and September. There is a known record from Colwick CP in 1995 (per Colwick Park Wildlife 1995), but this adult was trapped by David Yates in his Southwell garden on August 17th 2010. Our thanks go to David for letting us have the opportunity to photograph the moth. There is a more recent record of one taken at Underwood in 2022 (Hector Brown, K. via Facebook).
Photographed at Southwell August 2010
