Blood-vein Moth, Timandra comae by Eleanor Farmer
The Blood-vein is a member of the geometridae family of moths. The name geometridae derives from Latin geometra for ‘geometer’ or ‘earth-measurer’. This refers to the means of locomotion of the caterpillars. Equipped with appendages at both ends of the body, a caterpillar will clasp with its front legs and draw up the hind end, then clasp with the hind end and reach out for a new front attachment - creating the impression that it is measuring its journey.
