Has anybody else noticed a marked absence/low numbers of the Chocolate-tip
(Clostera curtula) in 1998. I didn't see any at all here in Suffolk and
currently I have only a couple of records for one site from another recorder
for 1998.

We generally find this species localised but it normally turns up at quite a
few sites during the year and in reasonable numbers. In 1997 I have records
for 11 sites.

Was the miserable spring to blame?
