Syncopacma polychromella
African Sober

(Rebel, 1902)35.009/850
Norfolk status
Until recently, only a handful of UK records from the south and south-west, mostly in May and June.

The adult moth is rather distinctive, and does not have any real confusion species in Britain.
(S. captivella is similar, tends to have a whiter head, and stripe across wings is narrower with parallel edges. Both species can be variable, so caution advised)

Unusual influx throughout the UK in December 2015.

New for Norfolk at Great Ellingham in December 2015 (C. Knott, 19/12/15)
