Eupithecia distinctariaGeometridaeABH 70.172 B&F 1843
Historically rare and local in the county, the species remains very local, recorded very irregularly in small numbers. It inhabits rocky cliffs, limestone quarries and sand-dunes, so in the county most records have been from the Bristol Channel coast. As the name suggests, the larval foodplant is Wild Thyme. It may be disturbed in the day in warm weather.
