Main: (Geometridae / Larentiinae (Eupetheciini))
70.141 [B&F: 1862] Double-striped Pug (Gymnoscelis rufifasciata) (Haworth, 1809)

 

Common in parks, gardens, hedgerows, roadside verges, heathland, moorland and woodland throughout the British Isles. Widespread and very common in Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 15-19 mm. Straightforward to identify, a good diagnostic feature is the strength of the two forewing fasciae, which are heavy in the costal half, and faint in the dorsal half. Larva feeds on the foliage of woody plants such as Holly, Ivy, Gorse, Broom, Heather, Rowan and Traveller's-joy, over-wintering as a pupa.
