Satin Wave

    Idaea subsericeata

    GeometridaeABH 70.009 B&F 1709

    A scarce and local moth, observed most years in small numbers.  The stronghold appears to be the northern edge of the Blackdowns, between Taunton and Chard; it is less frequent than it was in the Quantocks and around Minehead, and very scattered in occurrence and increasingly rare elsewhere, usually on or near calcareous grassland sites.
