Raspberry Clearwing Moth from Clifton

Following my postings earlier this year I have now added today the fifth Clearwing species for my garden with a single specimen of Raspberry Clearwing (Pennisetia hylaeiformis) attracted to a pheromone lure with 10 mins of putting it out!

Charles Baker recorded larval damage from this species on the raspberry canes in his garden earlier this year but this is the first Beds adult record for this species.
