Wintersett - Sallow Nycteoline. 1st record for Britain!

The Sallow Nycteoline,  Nycteola degenerama 

trapped at Wintersett Country Park on 03/9/2022 

is a female,  and the genitalia are not the most distinctive, 

however,  they did agree well with the female photos 

on the Lepidoptera Dissection Group website.

This is the 1st confirmed record for Britain!

Many congratulations to Pete Smith.
