Notocelia trimaculana
Triple-blotched Bell

(Haworth, 1811)1176 / 49.298
=Epiblema trimaculana
Norfolk status
Smaller than Notocelia roborana and N. rosaecolana with narrower forewings. Size can be hard to determine with lone individuals, caution is advised.

Separated from N. rosaecolana by the costal strigulae appearing quite thick. Note, the intensity of the pre-tornal marking and subterminal fascia can wear and become faint with all three species so should not be used as an identification aid.

Common on chalk downs and open woodland where hawthorn is well established throughout much of the British Isles.
Locally recorded in Norfolk with scattered records across the county.

Recorded in 56 (81%) of 69 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1874.
Last Recorded in 2020.
