(Zincken, 1817) 2050 / 72.045

Morley's Final Catalogue: Common everywhere at dusk and light.

Recent status: Still a common and widespread species in the county.

Identification: Easily distinguished from Scarce Footman by wings held flat (not rolled around the body) and yellow costal streak which tapers to a point and is not of uniform width. Shape eliminates the much broader melon pip-like Dingy Footman from the present species.

Habitat: A wide variety of habitats.

Recorded in 55 (95%) of 58 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1930.
Last Recorded in 2019.
