The Ashworth's Rustic moth is Pensychnant's claim to mothy notoriety. Endemic to the hills of North Wales, it has lured lepidopterists to Sychnant since it was first discovered here in 1881.
However, its caterpillars remain elusive and its food plants are uncertain.
Come and help search for this moth; the more eyes the better!
