Autumn Green Carpet Chloroclysta miata

(Linnaeus, 1758)

Wingspan 34-40 mm.

Locally distributed throughout Britain, this is another moth which appears in autumn and overwinters as an adult. It flies in September and October, and again, though less commonly, in March and April.

The larval foodplants are rowan (Sorbus aucuparia) and sallow (Salix), and the species generally inhabits woodland and scrubland.
