The Forester Adscita statices

A day-flying species, the Forester is widespread but absent over wide areas. It flies in sunshine during June and July. The antennae, head, thorax, legs and abdomen are shiny green (the thorax is occasionally blue green and shimmering). However, the wings may appear rusty-red in the early morning and evening. Image: Stuart Read (Flickr).
