70.270 [B&F: 1947] Engrailed (Ectropis crepuscularia) ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)

 

Common in broad-leaved woodland, hedgerows, parks and gardens throughout the British Isles. Widespread and common in Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 38-45 mm. Very difficult to distinguish from, and perhaps conspecific with, Small Engrailed E. crepuscularia. Larva feeds on the foliage of many different woody plants, including Sessile and Pedunculate Oak, Downy and Silver Birch, Hazel, Hawthorn, Sallow, Broom, Buckthorn, Spindle, Wild Privet and Hornbeam, over-wintering as a pupa.
