|Dingy Mocha Cyclophora pendularia|
Status: Doubtfully recorded in VC32
Distribution and Abundance: N/A.
Localities: Castle Ashby and near Thrapston 1902, Harleston Heath and Yardley Chase 1882.
Observations: There has been some confusion over the years with regards to this species and Birch Mocha, due to a change in the scientific name of the latter. It is highly probable therefore that Dingy Mocha has never been recorded in the county and that all records refer instead to Birch Mocha.
L.O.N.: 1902. Castle Ashby, near Thrapston. Not common.
First Record: 1882, Hull & Tomalin.
