Scarce Umber

    Agriopis aurantiaria

    GeometridaeABH 70.254 B&F 1933

    Local and not especially common, being more frequent in the oak-rich south and west of the county.  Because the moth flies very late in the year and seems not to wander far from woodland, it is probably very under-recorded.
