Lomographa punctata (Fabricius, 1775)

Status and ecology:

A resident species and suspected occasional autumn immigrant. It usually occurs sparingly or fairly commonly in a wide range of habitats, and it is sometimes common at mv light in woods and bushy places; a little more numerous flying naturally at dusk, but always scarce along treeless parts of the coast. Generally distributed in large areas but high numbers are very local and episodic. This species is single-brooded occurring mainly from early May to early August, occasionally from mid April or to mid August. A few adults have also been seen in mid September, some out at sea and near the coast. The species is not known to be double-brooded, either here or in northern Europe so our autumnal examples may have come from afar. Larvae feed on sloe and plum. (Pratt, 2011)
