Arctiidae

2045 Hoary Footman, Eilema caniola (Hübner, 1808)

Status and ecology:

National Status: Nb

Resident and suspected immigrant. The moth usually occurs singly, sometimes sparingly, but it is also occasionally fairly common at mv light in a wide range of habitats. Well distributed throughout the county, but very local if more than singletons are to be seen. Double-brooded, flying mainly from the second week of June to early October, most numerously from late June to mid August. Larvae have not been discovered in Sussex, but elsewhere they feed on unidentified lichens growing on rocks, and the roof-slates of domestic housing, and also on bird’s-foot trefoil, kidney vetch, and white clover. (Pratt, 2011)
