Oak Nycteoline?

Unfortunately I have no picture for which I am kicking myself - I usually photo as much as I can before potting stuff.

It had come to the kitchen door - I thought it looks exactly like I've seen them but I don't know if the flight season is right - and if it wasn't what it might be.

It looked like a large broad tortrix, greyish brown with a central red brown band.

  1. Records from April through to October. I had one in my trap on the 19th. 2 generations, yours either the end of the first or the start of the second.

  2. ok thanks Peter. Maybe I will be lucky and it will turn up in the trap tonight.

  3. We had one at Holtspur Bottom the previous night so they are definitely around.

  4. I had one at the weekend too - I'll post a photo of it in my next post
