Varied Coronet Hadena compta

([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)


Wingspan 25-30 mm.

An adventive colonist, being relatively unknown in the British Isles until the late 1940's, when it started to appear in numbers in the south-east. Since then it has spread rapidly and now can be found as far north as Lincolnshire.

The main foodplant is sweet william ( Dianthus barbatus ), and as a result it is often common in gardens, but it also feeds on bladder campion ( Silene vulgaris ), in both cases consuming the seeds.

The main flight period is from June to July, when the species comes to light.
