Geometridae

1933 Scarce Umber, Agriopis aurantiaria (Hübner, 1799)

Status and ecology:

A resident species often fairly common to common at mv light in its woodland headquarters, normally occurring sparingly in a wide range of other habitats and is positively scarce along treeless parts of the coast. Well distributed in the north-west but much less so elsewhere. Extremely local in high numbers and in decline. This species is single-brooded occurring mainly from early November to the second week of December, sometimes from the second week of October or to late December. Larvae feed on oak, (silver) birch, hawthorn and beech. (Pratt, 2011)
