Eupithecia albipunctata (Haworth, 1809) homonym
Resident occurs sparingly or fairly commonly at mv light in a wide range of habitats. Probably generally distributed, but high numbers are very local. Chiefly double-brooded and sometimes triple-brooded in overlapping flights, during recent years the main flight has commenced in the second week of April and adults have been seen every week until late October. Larvae feed on the flowers of hogweed, angelica and wild parsnip. (Pratt, 2011).
