The Flame Axylia putris
Wingspan 27-32 mm.
A common species over most of Britain, except in the far north where it is more local.
The adults rest with the wings wrapped around the body and closely resemble a broken piece of twig.
It inhabits woodland fringes, hedgerows and suburban habitats, and flies mainly in June and July, sometimes with a partial second generation in the autumn.
The caterpillars feed at night on various low-growing herbaceous plants, including dock (Rumex) and bedstraw (Galium).
