The Engrailed (Ectropis crepuscularia) is a moth of the family Geometridae. Some authors split this moth into two species: E. bistortata The Engrailed and E. crepuscularia Small Engrailed. It is distributed across most of Europe.
The ground colour of the wings is buff or grey variably marked with darker fascia. The darker markings are not usually as strong as in the rather similar Willow Beauty. Melanic forms occur fairly frequently. The wingspan is 38-45 mm. One or two broods are produced each year. In the British Isles the adults can be seen at any time between March and August; this time range may vary in other parts of this moth's range. The species flies at night and is attracted to light.
Expression of the engrailed gene reveals nine putative segment-anlagen in the embryonic pleon of the freshwater crayfish cherax destructor (Crustacea, Malacostraca, Decapoda).
