Main: (Geometridae / Larentiinae (Eupetheciini))
70.174 [B&F: 1820] Pinion-spotted Pug (Eupithecia insigniata) (Hübner, 1790)

 

Notes: Nationally scarce (Nb) along woodland edges and sunken lanes, in central and southern England, with records north to Yorkshire. In Hampshire this beautiful pug has a stronghold north of Winchester, between the Test Valley and Alresford, but is nevertheless rare and elusive. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 18-22 mm. Fairly unmistakable. Larva feeds on Hawthorn, Crab Apple and Apple, over-wintering as a pupa.
