1855a Channel Islands Pug, Eupithecia ultimaria Boisduval, 1840

Status and ecology:

A resident and suspected occasional immigrant, which is restricted to within four miles of the coast between the Hampshire border in the west and St. Leonards in the east. Adults usually occur as singletons at mv light, although they have been seen in greater numbers at rest by neon lights along Eastbourne seafront in recent years. A double-brooded species, this moth can be seen generally from late May to mid August and again throughout September. The larval food-plant is Tamarisk. (Pratt, 2011)
