1961 Light Emerald Campaea margaritata

1961 Light Emerald Moth - Campaea margaritata


Wingspan 30-40 mm.


An attractive pale-green species, which has a blood-red tip to the forewing, sometimes extending as a line along the outer edge of both fore and hindwings.

It is quite commonly distributed throughout most of the British Isles, and flies from June to August, often with a partial second generation in the south, appearing in August and September.

The larvae live on the foliage of a number of deciduous trees, and have a distinctive fringe of 'hairs' all along the underside
