The Small Engrailed (Ectropis crepuscularia) is a species of moth in the Geometridae family.

This species is very similar to the Engrailed (E. bistortata), and despite it's name, the species can't always be seperated by size alone, as the second generation of Engrailed are often smaller than the Small Engrailed.

The wings are extremely variable, but are usually white with dark markings, but can be dark with light markings.The Engrailed is usually browner than the Small Engrailed.
