Geometridae

1769 Spruce Carpet, Thera britannica (Turner H J, 1925)

Status and ecology:

A resident species, in the east occurring singly or sparingly in a wide range of habitats, but occasionally fairly commonly in evergreen plantations. In the west it is more consistently fairly common to common. Widespread but high numbers are very local. Generally double-brooded and sometimes triple-brooded, flying from early May to early July and from late August to late October, with a very localised third emergence between early November and early December. Larvae feed on spruce. (Pratt, 2011)
