There are a couple of species of Cladara that are apparently almost indistinguishable, and photographs alone will not allow identification. Except that there is only one that is found on Vancouver Island, Cladara limitaria. I like that when it happens. The other, by the way, should you be looking at green blotched geometrids somewhere else is C. anguilineata. The larva feed on conifers and the adults generally fly April to June. Please imagine the background as a particularly artistic rendition of the star lit night sky in which this critter flies.
Two biologists on a beautiful property armed with cameras, smart phones and a marginal knowledge of websites took up the challenge of documenting one species a day on that property. Join along! Posts and photographs by Leah Ramsay and David Fraser (unless otherwise stated; started January 1, 2014.
