Red-tipped Clearwing

Synanthedon formicaeformis (52.008)

The adult Red-tipped Clearwing moth is on the wing between late May and early July. It is very local in Warwickshire but where it does occur, it can sometimes be seen in good numbers. Brandon Marsh is a realiable site for the species. Wetland sites where the larval foodplants occur are the best place to look for this species.
