Aedia funesta - a first for Britain

 Aedia funesta (photo Nigel Jarman)

A surprise for Nigel Jarman on Sunday 13/6/2014 in his garden trap at Kingsdown. Nigel recognised that it was similar to The Alchymist (Catephia alchymista) and The Sorcerer (Aedia leucomelas) and by a careful search on the WEB discovered its identity. What a great find, a first for Britain!
