Daytime moths in Cornwall: Six-belted Clearwing

with No Comments
This Six-belted Clearwing was seen on the heath above Kynance Cove on The Lizard at the end of July.

Our usual method of recording this species is to attract it to pheromones placed amongst Common Bird’s-foot-trefoil and Kidney Vetch (Anthyllis vulneraria) but, on this occasion, we came across this one sitting on the flower head of a rush.
