  Yellow Shell Camptogramma bilineata  

B&F: 1742

ABH: 70.059

Status: Resident.

Distribution and Abundance: Common.

Primary Habitat: General occurrence.

Flight Period: Single brooded from June to August.

Observations: Although uncommon at light, I have often seen the moth feeding at the flowers of buddleia near to my garden m.v. light trap. The lack of attraction to light is evident from the Fineshade Rothamsted light trap returns for seven years in the 1990’s with an annual average of three moths recorded in an overall flight period from 29 June to 25 August. As the moth is easily disturbed by day the remaining grid squares could easily be filled in this way.

L.O.N.: 1907. Everywhere. Abundant.

First Record: 1882, Hull & Tomalin.
