Class: Insecta

Family: Geometridae
Genus: Xanthorhoe
Species: X. ferrugata
Binomial name: Xanthorhoe ferrugata

The Dark-barred Twin-spot Carpet, Xanthorhoe ferrugata, is a moth of the genus Xanthorhoe in the family Geometridae.


De vierbandspanner (Xanthorhoe ferrugata) is een nachtvlinder uit de familie Geometridae, de spanners. De spanwijdte bedraagt tussen de 24 en 27 millimeter. De donkere middenband over de voorvleugel kan zowel zwart zijn als roodbruin.

De vlinder vliegt in twee generaties van half april tot en met september. De vierbandspanner heeft allerlei lage planten als waardplant. De vlinder is in Nederland en BelgiŽ algemeen.

Als de vierbandspanner een roodbruine middenband heeft, is hij makkelijk te verwarren met de bruine vierbandspanner, in een aantal gevallen is zelfs microscopisch bestuderen van de genitaliŽn nodig om te komen tot een definitieve determinatie.

Hi Thijs.
Unfortunately, I also do not know this species. However, it is not a hindrance to get pleasure from picture. I like wonderful composition created by impressive leaf and cute moth. Both are reproduced with excellent sharpness and details. Green colour palette are very nice for grey creature. Well done and kind regards.

Leuk zo'n rijtje Nederlandse foto's naast elkaar.
Wat een prachtige details in deze vlinder. Goed genomen. Uitstekende compositie en vage achtergrond. Zelfs het blad is het bekijken meer dan waard.

Hello Thijs,
A great capture of this beautiful Moth showing clearly the fine wing markings and colours. I like its pose at the edge of the leaf and the soft background. A lovely composition too!

Hello Thijs,
An excellent macro of X. ferrugata, an attractive geometrid moth taken from a nice POV with fine sharpness and colours in a fine composition on the leaf.
Thanks and have a good week,
Ivan

An expertly capture of a small moth Thijs, a male I believe, the pattern and colouration of which is reproduced in great detail against the green leaf and BG. TFS this fine image my friend.
Cheers,
Mehmet
