The Satellite Eupsilia transversa Length 23-24mm. A well-named moth (if examined closely) that rests with one forewing partly overlapping the other. Adult has variably brown forewings with a prominent white or orange spot around which two smaller ‘satellite’ white spots orbit. Overwinters and flies October-April. Larva feeds on a range of deciduous shrubs and trees. Widespread and fairly common in southern and central Britain; more local further north.
