Great Peacock Moth Saturnia pyri

Status: Accidental.

Record: 3 June 1988 Wollaston (J. Ward).

Observations: The record refers to a male moth that was found barely alive outside the premises of a firm of importers on an industrial estate in Wollaston. I saw the moth on 15 June 1988, by which time it was dead, and positively indentified it. There is no doubt that the moth was imported with the firm’s goods.

First Record: 1988, Ward.
