BEECH GREEN CARPET MOTH Colostygia olivata

 

 

         The Beech Green Carpet Moth Colostygia olivata is a predominantly northern species in the UK with a sporadic distribution in southern counties. Northern specimens may have stronger markings, particularly when freshly emerged and as is often the case with geometrid moths of a similar shape the difficulty in obtaining an identification to species increases with wear and tear. The larvae feed on bedstraws.
