Moth Extinct in UK Returns After 50 Years
Hold off on your Formula C spray, if you happen to come across this little fellow. The Clifden Nonpareil- a name that means Beyond Compare- is one of the largest and most spectacular moths that are native to the UK.
Noticeable by its bright blue stripe across its black hindwings, it has a wingspan that reaches an impressive 12cm. And is considered a holy grail among Moth enthusiasts across the country.
This magnificent (slightly terrifying if Moths aren’t for you) species has made its way back to the UK and is no being spotted more and more frequently.
