Maple Pug Eupithecia inturbata

(Hübner, [1817])

Wingspan 13-15 mm.

One of the smaller 'pug' moths, this species is relatively scarce, though distributed over the larger part of England and Wales.

It occupies a variety of wooded and semi-wooded habitats, and the larvae feed on the flowers of field maple (Acer campestris).

The adults are on the wing in July and August and come to light.
