Red Data Book species in danger of extinction in the UK.

The future of the Marsh Moth is in the balance. Until earlier this last decade the moth was known at only two sites, both in Lincolnshire. Since the great storm of the 2012/2013 winter, one of these sites is now in doubt. entomological scientists are presently attempting to introduce the moth to other suitable area's.

Status: Resident in UK.

Wing Span: 18mm to 34mm.

Flight Period: May and June.

Habitat: Marshy places on older areas of sand dunes. Their former habitats were the margins of inland fens.

Comment: This moth was known from a few sites in the Huntingdon, and Cambridgeshire fens, but now appears to be extinct at those sites.
