1955 Common White Wave, Cabera pusaria (Linnaeus, 1758)

Status and ecology:

A resident species often occurring sparingly in a wide range of habitats, but it is sometimes fairly common and occasionally common at mv light in woods; a little more numerous flying naturally at dusk. Generally distributed in large areas, but high numbers are very local and irregular. This species is double-brooded, flying mainly from early May to early June and again from the second week of June to early September. Adults have been seen in every week from the third week of April to mid September. Larvae feed on (silver) birch, sallow and hazel. (Pratt, 2011)
