55.3. Geometrinae  – emerald moths

Small (20–30 mm wingspan) moths, usually with bright green wings (occasionally brown or yellow, or crypic in some Old World species). Th e green pigment fades when exposed to moisture and often appears yellow, even in living specimens. These moths can be separated from other geometrids by wing venation: in both the fore- and hindwing, vein M 2 arises distinctly above the middle of the discal cell.

Approximately 2300 species of Geometrinae  are known worldwide, primarily from the tropics. Seventy-four species are known in North America, eight of which are known from AB. Th e group was revised by Ferguson (1985a); most Canadian species were also treated by McGuffin (1988).
