The Fir Carpet (Thera vetustata) is a species of moth in the Geometridae family.

A very rare vagrant to Britain, with one record for Britain, and that was in Sussex in October 2011. Fairly similar to the Pine and Grey Pine Carpets, this species is a chalky white colour, with a brown-grey box on the leading edge of the forewings, and also near the base of the forewings.
