Noctuidae

2221 Mullein, Shargacucullia verbasci (Linnaeus, 1758)

Status and ecology:

Resident. Adults usually occur singly, occasionally sparingly, but larvae are often fairly common and sometimes common in a wide range of habitats. All stages are extremely local and very irregular in numbers. Well distributed in East Sussex but missing from a large part of the western vice-county. I decline. Single-brooded, flying mainly from the second week of April to early June, occasionally from early April to early July. Larvae usually feed on great mullein and less frequently on water betony, buddleja, figwort and horticultural strains of mullein. (Pratt, 2011)
