|Haworth's Pug Eupithecia haworthiata|
Distribution and Abundance: Local.
Primary Habitat: Woodland.
Flight Period: Single brooded in June and July.
Localities: Salcey Forest, Old Pastures, Fineshade and Werrington.
Observations: The species is under recorded and is probably well distributed amongst its foodplant the travellers joy throughout the county. In the past I have found the caterpillar easily by collecting tenanted flower buds; these are conspicuously marked by a black hole in the side where the larva has gained entry. This may be an easy way of increasing the known range of the species.
L.O.N.: 1907. Near Oundle. Local.
First Record: 1902,Victoria County History.
