Sesiidae

375 White-barred Clearwing, Synanthedon spheciformis ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)

Status and ecology:

National Status: Nb

Resident. Adults are only occasionally detected in the wild. But larvae and pupae are often fairly common along woodland rides, railway-tracks and on wooded heathland. Never found more than 10 miles away from our northern-most borders with Surrey and Kent, and perhaps in danger of extinction in West Sussex. Single-brooded, flying mainly throughout June, occasionally from late May or to early July. Larvae feed on the wood inside alder saplings and birch trunks. (Pratt, 2011)
