A rather attractive species, this moth is scarce, but widely distributed in woodland habitat throughout the southern part of Britain.

hallo Harm,
Das ist wirklich ein wunderschöner Falter und was für ein Namen: Ahorn-Gürtelpuppenspanner. Schön präsentiertes Bild , frage mir nur, was dieser blaue Hintergrund wohl ist?
Liebe Grüsse
