Translated from the Dutch Vlinderstichting entomologists:

28 December 2015 – On Christmas Eve in the workshop of Natuurmonumenten conservation organisation in Zwanenwater nature reserve in Callantsoog a moth, attracted by the light, was found. It proved to be a Tathorhynchus exsiccata, which has not previously been seen in the Netherlands. It is a species of Africa and the Canary Islands, which sometimes migrates to the north.
