Cistus Forester

Adscita geryon

Family: Zygaenidae

RES: 54.003 B&F: 164

Verification Grade (Adult):

Not known to the Kent database, but other literatures suggests this moth has been recorded in Kent historically. It is still found in Sussex so may yet return(?) to Kent. Clearly a smaller moth than the other two species - it is one to keep an eye out for.
