A Serraphim, a Scalloped Hazel and a Barred Umber

Three rather different geometrid moths in the trap over the last couple of days

This is a Serraphim – a local species which is on the wing in May and June. The caterpillars feed on the leaves of aspen and poplars

This is a Barred Umber – another local species which is on the wing from May to June. The caterpillars feed on hazel, birch and hawthorn.

This is a Scalloped Hazel – again on the wing in May and June. The caterpillars feed on the leaves of a wide variety of woody shrubs, trees and even some conifers.
