Noctuidae

2494 Clay Fan-foot, Paracolax tristalis (Fabricius, 1794)

Status and ecology:

National Status: Na

A nationally notable "A" species in the Red Data Book. Resident and normally occurring singly or sparingly at mv light, it is sometimes fairly common and even common in oak woods and sweet chestnut coppice in the far east. Very local and irregular in numbers and in decline. Well distributed in the extreme north-west and probably generally so in the far east but intervening colonies are few. Single-brooded, flying mainly from late June to early August. Larvae feed on dead oak leaves. (Pratt, 2011)
