Geometridae

1949 Square Spot, Paradarisa consonaria (Hübner, 1799)

Status and ecology:

A resident species usually occurring singly or sparingly at mv light in most places, although it is often fairly common in its leading localities along mature woodland rides within coniferous plantations. Widespread in the north and far west of the county, but only a few colonies exist elsewhere. Extremely local in numbers. This species is single-brooded occurring mainly from early May to early July, sometimes from mid April and occasionally to the second week of July. Larvae feed on oak, beech, hornbeam and (silver) birch. (Pratt, 2011)
