1675 Dingy Mocha, Cyclophora pendularia (Clerck, 1759)

Status and ecology:

National Status: RDB3

An extinct species which hasn't been detected in East Sussex since about the 1890's and in West Sussex since the early 1930's. The moth was usually found in singletons in at least a dozen of our deciduous woods, although it was occasionally fairly common at the Holmbush (Albourne) and Guestling. Double-brooded, flying mainly from mid May to early June, occasionally from the second week of May, and again from late July to the third week of August. The larval foodplant was not recorded in Sussex but various Sallows have been listed from elsewhere. (Pratt, 2011)
