|2142 ~ Beautiful Yellow Underwing ~ Anarta myrtilli|
Fairly common where its habitat is found. The north of the county (especially around the Lake Vyrnwy area) seems to be the stronghold for this species.
Wingspan : M & F, 24-28mm.
Small Dark Yellow Underwing, True Lover's Knot.
Heathland and moorland.
Heather and bell heather.
The early stages have not been confirmed in the wild, although it is known that the larva is seen from April-November and the pupa is formed in a tough cocoon on or just below the soil.
