Spotted Clover Protoschinia scutosa

([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)


Wingspan c.30-36mm.

This is a scarce immigrant species to the British Isles, with individuals typically occurring between July and September, and most records from eastern and south-eastern England. Occasional influxes of several individuals have occurred with other migrant activity.

The adult moths are rather distinctive and unlikely to be confused with any other species within these shores.

The distribution abroad covers Europe, North Africa and Asia.
