EsMj038 Idaea degeneraria (Portland Ribbon Wave)

EsMj038 Idaea degeneraria (Portland Ribbon Wave)
Geometridae, Sterrhinae - Wingspan: 23mm
Pink coloured overall, but possibly a non-banded version of the above named species. In this same recording period, three were like the illustration here, whilst two pairs of a similar darker wave, but with an almost black forewing central band, also came in on other nights. the banded versions laid a number of eggs overnight, which was successfuly reared on withered leaves. The resulting offspring resulted in a mixture of banded and non-banded adults.
