2157 Light Brocade Lacanobia w-latinum
(Hufnagel, 1766)Wingspan 37-42 mm.
Reasonably common south of the Midlands, but rare elsewhere, this species shows a preference for calcareous soils, where it occupies rough ground and heathland.
The single generation is on the wing in May and June, sometimes into July.
A number of plants are used by the larvae as foodplants, including broom (Cytisus scoparius) and dyer's greenweed (Genista tinctoria).
