  Least Carpet Idaea rusticata  

B&F: 1699

ABH: 70.004

Status: Resident

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.
