2075 Small Black Arches, Meganola strigula ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)

Status and ecology:

National Status: Na

A resident species listed as Notable A in the Red Data Book. In danger of extinction in both vice-counties. The moth usually occurs singly or sparingly in most places but it is sometimes fairly common in our foremost mature oak woods. Distribution is confined to a few deciduous woods in the north-west and to Plashett Wood and the Vert Wood complex in the east. Extremely local and distinctly irregular in numbers. Single-brooded, flying mainly from late June to Late July, occasionally from the second week of June. Larvae feed on oak, although this has yet to be confirmed in Sussex. (Pratt, 2011)
