Brindled Ochre

This rare moth in Ceredigion was recorded by Chris Bestall in Penbryn. This is only the 12th record for this species and just the 2nd Spring record. These moths fly in the Autumn, when mating occurs, but only the females overwinter to lay their eggs in the Spring. All our records are from the south west tip of the county.
