1874 Dingy Shell, Euchoeca nebulata (Scopoli, 1763)

Status and ecology:

Another resident species in decline, the Dingy Shell usually occurs singly or sparingly at mv light in the woodland habitats where colonies exist. It is widespread in the far west and far east of the county, but has declined in recent years in central Sussex. It is a single-brooded species flying mainly from late May until the third week of August. Larvae feed on alder. (Pratt, 2011)
