[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Latticed Heath (Chiasmia clathrata) is a moth of the family Geometridae, belonging to the subfamily Ennominae, placed in the tribe Macariini. It is found throughout Europe, the Near East and North Africa (Chinery, 1986) and east through Russia and Siberia to Japan. It is a fairly common species in the British Isles (Skinner, 1984).
The current placement of clathrata in the genus Chiasmia follows from the revision by Scoble (2002) of the tribe Macariini, when he showed that true Semiothisa species were restricted to the Americas. There are a number of described subspecies. Molecular work (Ňunap et al., 2011) has confirmed the placement of clathrata within Chiasmia.(Wikipedia)
