73.213 [B&F: 2312] Olive (Ipimorpha subtusa) ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)

 

Notes: Local in broad-leaved woodland, marshes, river-banks, gravel pits, gardens and parks throughout England, Wales and southern Scotland; widespread and reasonably common across most of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 28-34 mm. The main confusion species is Double Kidney I. retusa, but I. subtusa has distinctly convex subterminal fascia (straight in I. retusa) and much less pointed apex than I. retusa. Larva feeds high up in Aspen, Black Poplar and White Poplar trees, over-wintering as an egg.
