UK Moths say

Formerly, northern populations with a two-year cycle were given sub-specific status as the Northern eggar (Lasiocampa quercus callunae), but the situation is not as clear-cut as previously thought.

For Ron Elliot

Hi Ron, as an expert are you saying the Northern Eggar no longer exists. It's just for my (and others) information as I was not aware of it. Thanks Chris.
