Grey Pine Carpet Thera obeliscata

(Hübner, [1787])


Wingspan 28-36 mm.

Fairly common throughout Britain, this species shows rather more variation than the similar Pine Carpet (Thera firmata).

There are two generations, with moths flying from May to July, and again in September and October.

The larvae feed mainly on pine (Pinus) and spruce (Picea) but sometimes on other conifers.
