Cyclophora ruficiliaria(Herrich-Schäffer, 1855) / Jersey Mocha / Geelbruine Oogspanner / Braunroter Eichen-Gürtelpuppenspanner / les Trois-Cerceaux.

Wingspan c. 25-30mm

This species was recently recorded in Jersey, Channel Islands, where attention to earlier records of similar species showed it had been present for some time. The first mainland UK record was at Portland, Dorset in July 2003, and subsequently has been recorded again in Dorset, and in Cornwall.

The moth is superficially similar to False Mocha Cyclophora porata and Blair's Mocha Cyclophora puppillaria, but is rather plain in appearance with small white discal spots(You can see this white spots on my picture!).

The larva feeds mainly on oak (Quercus).
