Cistus Forester 1
Cistus Forester 2
Description:

On south-facing side of a limestone ridge. Several of these seen on Mouse-eared Hawkweed and Rock-rose. Bird's-foot Trefoil also present. The presence of these plant species,lack of Common and Sheep's Sorrel and this site being a known stronghold of this moth point to this species, rather than A.statices. Have ruled out Scarce Forester (too far north).
