Marbled Clover Heliothis viriplaca

(Hufnagel, 1766)


Wingspan 30 to 36mm.

This moth is a resident, being found in the Brecks of East Anglia. It is also thought possibly to be an immigrant as occasional moths are found in southern and eastern counties, but these
may be remnants of small populations.

The moth is univoltine, being found on the wing from mid June to mid July, visiting flowers such as
viper's bugloss (Echium vulgare).

The larva feeds on wasteland plants.
