Goosefoot Pug Eupithecia sinuosaria

(Eversmann, 1848)


Wingspan c. 18-26mm.

This northern European species has been recorded on only two occasions, both in 1992, in Somerset and Herefordshire.

It is distributed in Scandinavia and the Netherlands, and may be expanding so could well appear more frequently.

It inhabits waste ground, verges and open areas and flies from June to August.

The larvae feed on goosefoot (Chenopodium) and orache (Atriplex).
