|Peach Blossom Thyatira batis|
Distribution and Abundance: Fairly common.
Primary Habitat: Woodland.
Flight Period: Almost entirely single brooded from May to July.
Observations: The small second brood appears to be extremely infrequent in Northamptonshire, but does account for old records from Weekley Hall Wood on 23 August 1938 and 6 September 1923. The moth has been observed entering and exiting light traps without returning on a very regular basis. Where traps are left overnight this tendency may lead to some understatement of its true abundance.
L.O.N.: 1907. Many localities. Chiefly in woods. Common.
First Record: 1881, Porritt.
