Feathered Thorn

Back on Easter Sunday, I found a large number of very small first instar geometrid larvae on a lilac bush in our garden. I collected c15 to rear through - though it won't be until/if they emerge that I can be 100% sure what they are. The last of the collected batch went underground during the last week of April, whilst the ones left out on the bush to get on with things naturally are still pretty small.

ps - confirm after rearing to be Feathered Thorn
