Epirrhoe galiata([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775) / Galium Carpet / Walstrobandspanner / Breitbinden-Labkrautspanner / la Mélanthie du caille-lait.

Wingspan 28-32 mm.

A bedstraw (Galium) feeding species, this moth is to be found on lime and chalk downland, grassy heathland and sea-cliffs. It has a preference for coastal sites, but is also found inland.

It occurs throughout England and Wales, though locally, and is scarcer in Ireland and Scotland.

In the south there are two generations(first generation in May), whereas further north there is generally only one, but the adults are on the wing mainly between June and August.
