Lancashire Netted Carpet Moth - Larval Count

Wednesday 2nd to Sunday 6th September 2015

The Netted Carpet moth (Eustroma reticulatum) is confined in the UK to the Lake District and two sites in the extreme north of Lancashire (with just a possibility of residual colonies in mid-Wales). Its larvae feed only on Touch-me-not-Balsam (Impatiens noli-tangere), itself a nationally scarce plant. Thus conservation of this moth also involves conservation of its food plant
