70.180 [B&F: 1833] Bleached Pug (Eupithecia expallidata) Doubleday, 1856

 

Notes: Nationally scarce (Nb) in coppiced woodland, woodland rides and clearings, in England and Wales. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight there are a few confirmed records from each of the three vice-counties, but never really becoming established. Wingspan 20-24 mm. Can be confused with Wormwood Pug E. absinthiata, but Bleached Pug is paler and greyer with large discal spot on forewing and small discal spot on hindwing. Larva feeds on flowers of Goldenrod, over-wintering as a pupa.
