Cistus Forester - Longstone Edge

Very windy on Longstone Edge this afternoon but managed to locate the Cistus Forester, this is a small day flying moth with a body length of about 10mm so it takes a bit of locating. With the sun out the metallic green wings are striking.
The Cistus Forester has a conservation category of Nationally Scarce B, which indicates that it has been recorded from only 31 to 100 10km squares in Great Britain since January 1980.
