Rare moth discovered in the Netherlands


Spotted clover moth

Translated from the Dutch Butterfly Foundation:

Last week, a spotted clover moth was seen in Groningen. This very rare migratory moth had been found only seven times in our country, especially in the fifties of the last century.

The spotted clover is a migratory moth from southern Europe. After thirty years of absence (it was reported in 1958, 1955, 1954, 1953 and 1945) it was observed in Twello (Gelderland) in 1995 and now it has been seen again in Groningen. This is also the most northern discovery of this moth which is not able to survive the Dutch winter.
