Rare Fenn’s wainscot moth on Texel island


Fenn's wainscot

Translated from the Dutch Vlinderstichting entomologists:

Thursday, September 17th, 2015

Near the Schorren nature reserve on Texel Fenn’s wainscot moths have been found. It is in this century only the fourth time that this species has been seen in the Netherlands. That this is not an occasional vagrant was evidenced by the fact that during one evening four individuals were seen. Unique, because in the 1950s of the last century for the last time a viable population of Fenn’s wainscot moths had been found in Friesland in Eernewoude.
