Polia lamuta (Herz, 1903) (Lepidoptera, Noctuidae) discovered in Norway, and notes on other boreo-montane species

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikelVetenskapligPeer review


A single male of Polia lamuta (Herz, 1903) was found on the Iškoras mountain in Karasjok, Troms og Finnmark on 15–19 July 2020 with a bait trap. The discovery was expected since the species occurs widely in Northern Finland close to the Norwegian border and in the northernmost Sweden as well. The species lives in sandy, dry and sunny habitats and belongs to the boreal Palearctic continental fauna. Its taxonomy, morphology, ecology, and behavior are briefly reviewed. Occurrence of other boreal Noctuids such as Polia vesperugo Eversmann, 1856 and Xestia gelida (Sparre-Schneider, 1883) in the region is discussed.
