Notes: Recent colonist and immigrant, in coniferous woodland and plantations in parts of south-eastern England. First recorded in Britain in July 1981, when found in numbers in Orlestone Forest in Kent, and subsequently recorded in Essex, West Sussex and Surrey. Not recorded in Hampshire or on the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 38-44 mm. Can be confused with both Willow Beauty P. rhomboidaria, which has a pale apical patch on the underside of the forewing, and Lydd Beauty P. ilicaria, which has postmedian fascia on hindwing parallel with dorsum (the fascia meets the apex on Feathered Beauty). Larva feeds on Norway Spruce.
