Lepidoptera Family Ennomida Moths

This family contains about twenty species, several of which rank among the commonest as well as the most beautiful of the Geometra. Their wings are more or less angulated; and the antenna are generally pectinated in the males.

The larva are generally humped and twig-like; and, as in the last species, the semblance is increased by the position they assume when at rest. The number of limbs varies from ten to fourteen, but where the claspers exceed two pairs, the additional two or four, as the case may be, are seldom used in walking.
