|Bordered Beauty Epione repandaria|
Distribution and Abundance: Fairly common.
Primary Habitat: Woodland.
Flight Period: Single brooded from July to September.
Observations: That the species is normally sought at light, to which it is not strongly attracted, tends to belie its true abundance; I have found it to be more easily netted at dusk. Only two moths were taken at the Fineshade Rothamsted light trap in the eight years to 2000.
L.O.N.: 1907. Castle Ashby, near Kettering, Wadenhoe, Brigstock. Not uncommon. Sometimes at treacle.
First Record: 1902, Victoria County History.
