poplar lutestring

this poplar lutestring came to light early in the night in the ystwyth valley. the caterpillars feed mainly on aspen; there are a few mature aspen trees close to where it was caught. it would be interesting to know when and where this species has been recorded previously in the county.

  1. Hi Peter,
    According to Fowles list there have been 2 records, 1 at Trawscoed in June 1954 and Llanbadarn Fawr in the 1960. Not sure if any have turned up in the last couple of years, but if you have PWD's reports they would be in there.
