A Blog for moth recorders in Bucks, Berks and Oxon
It's a Pug, looks similar to a Lime-speck I had last year
Hello Wendy,I'm pretty sure Darren's right in that it's a Pug, but I wouldn't be sure which one. None of the Pugs is said to eat just Hawkbit, but several eat a variety of flowers, including Lime-speck Pug. Andy.
Thanks very much Darren and Andy,Having checked out various pug larvae on UKLEPS and others,I think it is more like Satyr Pug especially the top view which I also photographed. This also feeds on a variety of chalk downland plants including the hawkweeds.Wendy
