(Linnaeus, 1758) 1962 / 70.284

Morley's Final Catalogue: Considered 'somewhat scarce,' though recorded before 1890 from Freston, Playford, Leiston, Southwold and Fritton; from Brandon, Icklingham and a few during 1888-9 by Vivian at Tuddenham. Certainly rarer now: never seen by me here through 40 years (Morley). One at light in Belstead (Hkg); larvae beaten in Brightwell Woods and bred in 1903 et seqq. (Wlr); Bury (Norgate); flying by day at Mildenhall in June 1933 (Gd).- The var. prasinaria was captrued at Aldringham in July 1892 by Crutwell (EMM. 1892, 254); both it and the typical form used to be bred at Brandeston by Revd. Joseph Greene.

Recent Suffolk Status: Common in the Brecks and Sandlings with scattered records elsewhere.

Life history: Double-brooded in Suffolk, flying into September and October. Both greyish forms and the green form prasinaria have been noted in the county in recent years.

Identification: Unmistakeable.

Habitat: Coniferous woodland, plantations, heathland, gardens.

Recorded in 40 (69%) of 58 10k Squares.
