Geometridae

1679 False Mocha, Cyclophora porata (Linnaeus, 1767)

Status and ecology:

A Biodiversity Action Plan Priority Species. A resident and suspected immigrant. Adults are generally only seen in singletons, although they sometimes occur sparingly at mv light in mature oak woods and on heathland in both vice-counties; larvae are at times noticably more numerous. Currently missing from large areas, but increasing. Double-brooded, flying mainly from mid May to late June and again a little more numerously from mid July to late August, although adults have been seen in every week from late April to mid September. Larvae feed on Oak and (silver) Birch. (Pratt, 2011)
