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
