Moth no. 642

During 2019 the total number of macro-moth species ever recorded in Berkshire rose by one to 642, when Derek Brown found the Beautiful Marbled (Eublemma purpurina) for the first time in the vice-county. This species first arrived in Britain as a migrant in 2001, and has been found in small numbers since then in south-eastern counties of England.
