Geometridae

1930 Oak Beauty, Biston strataria (Hufnagel, 1767)

Status and ecology:

A resident species often common to very common at mv light in deciduous woods in West Sussex but only fairly common to common in the east, and much less frequent along treeless parts of the coast. Probably under-recorded and generally distributed, but high numbers are certainly very local. This species is single-brooded occurring mainly from late February to early April, sometimes from early February and occasionally from mid January. Larvae feed on oak, (silver) birch and sallow. (Pratt, 2011)
