Camberwell Beauty (Nymphalis antiopa)

2007 – 1 at St Enodoc Golf Course/Rock Sand Dunes on 27th August.

There appears to be no other confirmed sightings of this species within the Camel Estuary area although the Butterfly Atlas does indicate a pre-1995 record in the Padstow area. (More research is needed)
