The Annulet

Yesterday morning I found an unfamiliar, very worn moth in my Fairlght garden trap. Although worn, the diagnostic markings, including four rings, of The Annulet were still visible. Confirmed by county recorder Colin Pratt,[ "a very important record "] this moth is described in his "A comlete History of the Butterflies and Moths of Sussex" as "extinct in West Sussex and in imminent danger of extinction in the Eastern VC", having been last seen at Fairlight Glen in 2006, and Cow Gap in 2013. So nice to know it is  still around.

Congratulations, Alan, very good to know that it is 'clinging on' (literally?!) to the cliffs.
