Rare moth re-discovered in the Netherlands, on Griend island


White mantled wainscot

From Dutch news agency ANP:

GRIEND – Two birding rangers of the Dutch Natuurmonumenten society on the uninhabited Wadden island Griend have rediscovered the moth species Fenn’s wainscot. This species, according to Natuurmonumenten, has been seen for the last time in the Netherlands in 1955, near Earnewâld in Friesland province. …

Meanwhile, they [the birding rangers] have discovered 200 [moth] species on Griend.

  1. Hi Leily, thanks for reacting. As a map like here shows, the moth species Fenn’s wainscot is a north European species; mostly from countries further north than the Netherlands. In science, looking at just one individual of one species is of course not a big enough sample for the global climate picture; so, of course, it does not help anti-environmentalists.
