Lesser Yellow Underwing Noctua comes

Hübner, [1813]


Wingspan 37-45 mm.

Inhabiting a range of habitats, this moth is found plentifully throughout Britain.

Like its larger cousin, the Large Yellow Underwing (N. pronuba), it shows a wide range of variation in colour and pattern of the forewings.

The adults are on the wing between July and September, when they are often attracted to light.
