Geometridae

1759 Small Phoenix, Ecliptopera silaceata ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)

Status and ecology:

A resident species in decline, usually occurring singly or sparingly, but occasionally fairly common at mv light in woodland clearings, it is rare along treeless parts of the coast. Largely well distributed and probably generally so in the far east but high numbers are episodic and local. Double-brooded, flying from early May to early June and from mid-July to early September. Larvae feed on willow-herb and enchanterlady's nightshade. (Pratt, 2011)
