Ectropis Hübner, 1825
crepuscularia (Denis & Schiffermüller, 1775)

The Small Engrailed (ENG), täpläharmomittari (FIN), dubbelvågig lavmätare (SWE), kevad-samblikuvaksik (EST), Hochstaubenwald-Rinden-Zackenbindenspanner (GER)

This species is usually known as bistortata; the other taxon, aka crepuscularia or (in the Finnish List) sp., has been reported from Finland by Esko Suomalainen. The latter taxon is very rare in Finland and its validity as a good species is questionable.
