The Coronet Craniophora ligustri

([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)


Wingspan 30-35 mm.

Widely distributed, but not common, throughout much of Britain, it is more frequent in the south and south-west.

The habitat preferences are woodland, commons, downland and marshy places, and the flight period is during June and July.

When fresh, some individuals show an olive-green suffusion to the darker parts of the forewing.

The larval foodplants are ash (Fraxinus) and privet (Ligustrum).
