Geometridae

1934 Dotted Border, Agriopis marginaria (Fabricius, 1777)

Status and ecology:

A resident species usually occurring singly or sparingly at mv light in a wide range of habitats but is sometimes fairly common to common in deciduous woods and bushy places; occasionally very common in the Abbott's Wood complex. Apparently only thinly distributed and high numbers are extremely local and irregular. In decline. This species is single-brooded occurring mainly from early February to the third week of April, although adults have been seen in every week from late December to late April. Larvae feed on oak, hawthorn, hazel, sallow and birch. (Pratt, 2011)
