Critically Endangered (Possibly Extinct)
January 29, 2009
This species is restricted to the island of Madeira. It has not been reported since the 1970s despite several visits of lepidopterists to its former habitat. An adequate survey is needed to define if the species is extinct or not. It is therefore assessed as Critically Endangered (Possibly Extinct).
Date last seen: 1970s
