Lycaena tityrus, Cuivré fuligineux, Sooty Copper

Four specimens of this species have been found in the British Isles. The first was captured at Lee, near Ilfracombe, Devon in August 1887, the second in Kincardine-on-Forth near Fife, Scotland, the third (a female) by a schoolboy in Seaford, East Sussex, in August 1958, and the last at Grand Havre in Guernsey in August 1966. This species is not considered migratory. However, it is believed that the last two specimens could have been carried by the prevailing winds from the continent to the British Isles.
