1881 Early Tooth-striped, Trichopteryx carpinata (Borkhausen, 1794)

Status and ecology:

Another declining resident species, the Early Tooth-striped occurs sparingly or fairly commonly at mv light where it occurs in woodland. The moth is widespread away from the coast, but has recently become absent from central East Sussex. Single-brooded, the moth can be seen on the wing generally from mid March to early May. Larval foodplants are honeysuckle and sallow. (Pratt, 2011)
