Apotomis capreana
Sallow Marble

(Hübner, 1817)1094 / 49.151
Norfolk status
Similar to Apotomis betuletana but shows a stronger hook like indentation to the outer edge of the median fascia, this can be hard to interpret as betuletana shows a weak indentation so care should be exercised. The median fascia is more concave (not straight as in betuletana) appearing to curve along the costal edge of the forewing, stronger black dots set in the subterminal fascia.

Locally recorded in open woodland, margins of woods, gravel pits, marshes and banks of streams. Occurring mainly in the southern counties of England and Wales.
Flying predominantly in July and August, it can sometimes occur into early October.
The larvae feed on goat willow, spinning leaves together with silk.

Recorded in 39 (57%) of 69 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1874.
Last Recorded in 2020.
