Arctiidae

2067 Jersey Tiger, Euplagia quadripunctaria (Poda, 1761)

Status and ecology:

National Status: Nb

An immigrant and occasionally temporary resident. As an immigrant the moth usually occurs sparingly, episodically, in a wide range of habitats chiefly situated within 4 miles of the coast. As a resident a small very local colony seems to have existed on the shingle beach at Rye from the late 1990's until at least 2009. Single-brooded, flying mainly from early August to early September. Larvae have never been found in Sussex; elsewhere they feed on common nettle, hemp-agrimony, plantain, and other low-growing plants. (Pratt, 2011)
