Notocelia rosaecolana
Common Rose Bell

(Doubleday, 1850)1177 / 49.297
=Epiblema rosaecolana
Norfolk status
Locally uncommon.
First listed as "Generally in gardens on roses" by Barrett in 1874.

Larger than the similar Notocelia trimaculana and with finer, more oblique costal strigulae (i.e the small black dashes along the leading edge of the forewing are finer and more numerous than in N. trimaculana and roborana.)
Specimens may require genitalia examination to confirm.

We believe many Norfolk records are misidentifications.
Please photograph and/or retain specimens for confirmation.

Common on chalk downs, open woodland, thickets, hedgerows and gardens throughout much of Britain.

Recorded in 27 (36%) of 74 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1874.
Last Recorded in 2021.
