Cyclophora annularia

(Fabricius, 1775) 1676 / 70.031

Norfolk status
Rare, uncertain.

Restricted to woodlands with field maple on a chalky strata.
Unmistakable, although poorly marked specimens could be overlooked as Maiden's Blush.

Old Victorian records and just three modern-day records. Unfortunately all three modern-day records lack any supporting evidence, no photos or specimens are available to confirm the records.
I have provisionally included these records in the database as misidentification is presumed unlikely.

Specimen or photo must be retained to confirm any future sightings!

Retained Specimen / Photograph will be Required.

Recorded in 11 (15%) of 74 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1834.
Last Recorded in 2007.
