1846 Narrow-winged Pug, Eupithecia nanata Prout, 1938

Status and ecology:

Resident. Often fairly common to common at mv light and occasionally very common on heathland, occuring in singletons elsewhere. Widespread, but missing from a large part of central Sussex. High numbers are very local. Often double-brooded and sometimes partially triple-brooded in overlapping emergences. Flying from mid April to late August, although adults have been seen from second week of April to the third week of September. Larvae feed on the flowers of heather. (Pratt, 2011).
