A typically delicate geometrid with a wingspan of about 40mm and displaying a strong green colour within a broken pattern of wavy lines and bands.
This one was attracted to a dull exterior light near midnight.
Luckily it landed in my hand for a while for a few (one-handed) photos.
Two found in the last few years and both much greener than other web images. The green might fade after eclosion so this might be a very 'fresh' specimen?
Do we get greener ones in this area?
