Noctuidae

2214 Chamomile Shark, Cucullia chamomillae ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)

Status and ecology:

Resident. In danger of extinction in both vice-counties. Adults usually occur singly in a wide range of habitats but are occasionally seen sparingly or fairly commonly at mv light; larvae are sometimes noticeably more numerous. Very local and irregular in numbers. Now chiefly found in the south, and in serious decline. Single-brooded, flying mainly from the third week of April to mid June, although adults have been seen in every week from third week of March to early July. Larvae feed on garden chrysanthemum, yellow chamomile, scentless mayweed and wild chamomile. (Pratt, 2011)
