1692 Lesser Cream Wave, Scopula immutata (Linnaeus, 1758)

Status and ecology:

A resident that usually occurs singly or sparingly at mv light on damp heaths and amoungst water-filled dykes, but it is sometimes common at dusk at Amberley. Very local and distinctly episodic in appearance. Thinly distributed in the far east and far west but unknown in central areas. In decline in East Sussex. Single-brooded, flying mainly from early July to late August, occasionally from mid June. The larval foodplant has not been determined in Sussex, although Meadowsweet and Common (white) Valerian have been listed from other counties. (Pratt, 2011)
