Geometridae

1865 Broom-tip, Chesias rufata (Fabricius, 1775)

Status and ecology:

National Status: Nb

A species which is presumed to have been extinct in East Sussex since 1982, where it was always rare, and West Sussex since 1985, where it was previously sometimes fairly common, particularly in the Rogate area until the early 1980s. The moth flies in a single brood from April to August. The larval foodplant has not been confirmed in Sussex but is presumed to be broom, as it is elsewhere. (Pratt, 2011)
