This common geomtrid is often encountered during the day in the understory of deciduous or mixedwood forest, but also comes to lights at night. Adults rest with the wings flattened to side. The green larva rests along the midvein of the host leaves, and pupates in the fall. Eggs are laid singly on the host leaves, hatching in about one week (McGuffin 1981).
Conservation A common and widespread species, no concerns. Diet Info Larval food plants are willows (Salix spp.) (Prentice 1963), and on occasion poplars (Populus spp.) (McGuffin 1981). Range Coastal BC east to Newfoundland and Labrador, from northern BC south to Georgia, North Carolina and Arizona (McGuffin 1981, Wagner et al. 2001).
