With thanks to Diane from My life in Charente who gave me the e-mail address of John Joannou who in turn sent me this wonderful information.
This moth belongs to the family Geometridae – the Earth Measurers or Inch Worms – and falls under the genus Prasinocyma. Unfortunately containing a large number of species which are difficult to separate purely on morphological grounds.
Probably Prasinocyma pictifimbria but to be on the safe side refer to it simply as Prasinicyma species.
THANK YOU JOHN – your help is greatly appreciated. :)
A beautiful green moth which I cannot identify. If anyone knows the name of it, please contact me.It is fairly small in size and has no identifying marks but I think it belongs to the Geometridae family.
