Geometridae

1857 Dwarf Pug, Eupithecia tantillaria Boisduval, 1840

Status and ecology:

This is a resident species in decline. Although widespread, numbers are very local but sometimes common in evergreen plantations. Adults appear sparingly or even fairly commonly at mv light during a single brood, when adults are on the wing from the second week of May until late June. The larval foodplant is spruce, and there is also an association with larch. (Pratt, 2011)
