Epinotia semifuscana (Stephens, 1834)
A very rare moth that is in danger of extinction. Records have been recently confined to singletons in a few places on the coast to the east of Normans Bay and to the north of Petworth. It is single-brooded, flying mainly throughout July and August, occasionally to late September. The larvae feed on the shoots of sallows. (Pratt, 2011).
