Main: (Geometridae / Larentiinae)
70.201 [B&F: 1880] Barred Tooth-striped (Trichopteryx polycommata) ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)

 

Notes: Nationally scarce (Na) on chalk downland, in scrub, hedgerows and open woodland, discontinuously in Britain from Sussex to Cumbria, a priority species under the UK Biodiversity Action Plan. In Hampshire once common in Crab Wood, but most of the old privet bushes were grubbed up in making the car-park and other facilities for the Country Park and repeated efforts to relocate the moth have failed; in recent years only recorded from a few sites in the county, for example, Broughton Down, Martin Down, Harewood Forest and Leckford. There is just a single record from the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 33-36 mm. Unmistakable. Larva feeds on Wild Privet and Ash, over-wintering as a pupa.
