Yellow-ringed Carpet Entephria flavicinctata

(Hübner, [1813])


Wingspan 34-39 mm.

A species of rocky upland habitats including quarries, the adults can be found resting on stones during the day.

It is found locally in Yorkshire, but its main haunt is central and north-west Scotland.

Some populations fly in July and August, but others also have an earlier brood, on the wing in May.

The larvae feed on various species of saxifrage (Saxifraga) and stonecrop (Sedum).
