General Description

Although similar in colouration and size to Nemoria emeralds, the scalloped or wavy white transverse lines are unique; it is also the only emerald with a white dorsal line along the green abdomen. Usually the commonest green geometrid in Alberta.  Ferguson (1985) assigns Alberta populations to subspecies liquoraria (Guenee).
