Birch Mocha Cyclophora albipunctata

(Hufnagel, 1767)


Wingspan 20-25 mm.

A delicately mottled and speckled species, this moth sometimes shows a rosy flush, but other specimens may be fairly grey in appearance.

As suggested by the English name, the larvae feed on birch ( Betula ).

It occurs in woodland areas in much of Britain, except for parts of northern England, and flies in May and June, with a second generation in August in the south.
