Coordinator notes: According to UK Moths, there's debate as to whether the Engrailed and Small Engrailed are one species, or whether E. crepuscularia refers only to the Small Engrailed, with E. bistortata being separable as the Large Engrailed. This species (or species complex) seems to be mostly circumpolar.
