Jersey Tiger Euplagia quadripunctaria  (Poda, 1761)
Status .....Once restricted to the Channel Islands and in places along the UK's south coast, Jersey Tiger has spread in recent years to other southern counties, London and now appears to be moving northwards. Nottinghamshire's first record came from Phil Cadman's Worksop garden on August 5th 2020, coming during a favourable spell of southerly winds which saw migrant activity from a number of sites. In 2021, there were a further two records (via Butterfly Conservation) from Portland Park at Kirkby-in-Ashfield (O'Connor, L.) and from Rainworth (Robinson, D.) on August 5th.
