|Least Carpet Idaea rusticata|
Distribution and Abundance: Local.
Localities: Yardley Chase, Bozeat, Wellingborough and Northampton.
Observations: All of the above moths were taken in m.v. light traps. This species is clearly spreading within the county, however to date the moth has only been recorded as a singleton. The map indicates that the spread into the county is from the southeast reducing the likelihood of these being migrant records.
First Record: 2003, David.
