Agrotis vestigialis Hufnagel Archers dart moth

Minor damage to grass and cereal crops is occasionally attributable to this locally distributed species, usually in coastal districts. Adults occur in July and August and the larvae feed from August to the following May. Adults (32-38 mm wingspan) have pale brown, whitish-marked forewings and (in male) whitish or (in female) greyish hindwings. Larvae (up to 35 mm long) are greyish-green to greyish-brown and purplish-tinged, with darker longitudinal lines, black pinacula and spiracles, and distinctly quadrate mandibles; both the head and prothoracic plate are banded with black (cf. Agrotis segetum, p. 234).
