Highgate Woods London – First recorded Leopard Moth – Zeuzera pyrina

First recorded Leopard Moth - Zeuzera pyrina

The first recorded Wood Leopard Moth, Zeuzera pyrina, has been made in Highgate Woods in North West London. Native to the UK it is only common in the South but never before in Highgate Woods and it's natural reintroduction is a sign of increased biodiversity in London. The larvae feed on the wood of a wide variety of deciduous trees and the "Highgate" Leopard Moth was discovered in the heart wood of an Ash log having entered through decayed outer wood suggesting healthy trees are not the preferred choice.
