Pine Carpet Pennithera firmata

(Hübner, [1822])


Wingspan 30-34 mm.

Found locally throughout Britain where its foodplant, Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) occurs, this moth bears a resemblance to the closely related Grey Pine Carpet (Thera obeliscata, but has a more indented dark band on the forewing.

It has quite a long emergence period, and can be found on the wing from late July to November.
