Aplocera plagiata (70.192)

The Treble-bar is a relatively widespread and common species in Warwickshire and is very simlar to the less common Lesser Treble-bar which occurs in the same habitats and localities as Treble-bar and can only be reliably separated by inspecting the tip of the abdomen from below.

There are two generations per year with adult moths on the wing from mid-May to early July, and early August to late September.
