(Hufnagel, 1766) 2017 / 71.028

Morley's Final Catalogue: Not very scarce and widely distributed, preferring a diet of our common aspen in woods, whereon the larva was taken at Raydon in mid-August 1894 (Mly.) Not uncommon at Brandeston, but not found at Playford (Gr, 1857); taken at Ringshall by W. Baker (C: Nat. 1858, 135). Subsequently it was discovered at Bentley where it would seem now extinct for forty years, Needham, Aldeburgh (Hele, 188) and as far west as Tuddenham, though never taken there by Sparke.

Recent Status: Not recorded in the county since Morley's time and considered extinct here.

Identification: Compare with Chocolate-tip and Scarce Chocolate-tip.
