Notes
Photographed in Ted's Field in the old Sewage Works site, and initially unable to identify any closer than a Dichrorampha species. Tim Harris asked some friends in Norfolk, and later Essex, and eventually the latter came up with the suggestion that it could be D. montana.

It certainly looks like this species when referring to photos available on the web, although it hasn't been recorded in Norfolk or Essex. It is a species not found south of the Midlands. However, its habitat and food plants are certainly OK for the old Sewage Works site.
