Arctiidae

2039 Red-necked Footman, Atolmis rubricollis (Linnaeus, 1758)

Status and ecology:

Resident, reinforced by occasional immigration. The moth usually occurs singly or sparingly in a wide range of habitats, although it is fairly common to common at mv light amongst some deciduous woodlands. Extremely local and very irregular in appearance away from its headquarters. Single-brooded, flying mainly from early June to late July, occasionally from the third week of May. Larvae feed on unidentified lichens growing “ on the stems and branches of many forest trees and sometimes old park palings”, including branches of oak and beech. (Pratt, 2011)
