Cenochlora quieta

Cenochlora quieta GEOMETRINAE GEOMETRIDAE

This is another one that has sat around for some years. Like many of the Emeralds, it is difficult to separate the species especially when there are a number of photos identified as a certain species but differ from the identified species on a site like Bold Systems.
It is all a bit of a guessing game really.
However I do think this one is Cenochlora quieta.
Distribution of samples taken is fairly small including our area here near Toowoomba and a little to the North and East of our location and one instance on the North Coast of New South Wales.
Wing span about 20mm (judging from the flyscreen).
I found no information on the biology of this moth.



Family:- GEOMETRIDAE
Sub Family:- GEOMETRINAE
Genus:- Cenochlora
Species:- quieta
