General comments:
Ubiquitous.

Willow Beauty is the most frequently reported geometrid moth in the two counties. Formerly double-brooded there is now a third generation of adults every year, but this is small and overlaps with the tail end of the second generation. Third brood adults are smaller than the norm - often excessively so.

Recorded in 37 (90%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1887.
Last Recorded in 2023.
