Main: (Geometridae / Larentiinae)
70.112 [B&F: 1874] Dingy Shell (Euchoeca nebulata) (Scopoli, 1763)

 

Notes: Local in damp woodland, marshes and on river-banks throughout much of England and Wales. Widespread and common in Hampshire, but scarce on the Isle of Wight, with only one record so far this century. Wingspan 23-25 mm. Always rests with wings closed, when appears remarkably similar to Rannoch Looper Itame brunneata, with which there is no overlap of range in Britain. Larva feeds on Alder, over-wintering as a pupa.
