Dumeril's Rustic Luperina dumerilii

(Duponchel, 1826)

Wingspan c.33mm

This migrant species has occurred in Britain on a few dozen occasions, mostly in September and generally in southern coastal locations.

The adult resembles both Sandhill Rustic Luperina nickerlii and Flounced Rustic Luperina testacea, but exhibits an elongated orbicular stigma unlike the rounded ones in those species.
