ABSTRACT. The species composition and dynamics of flight of geometrid moths in the Yakutsk Botanical Garden located near Yakutsk City are considered. Data on flight period and wintering phases are given for 53 species. Four phenological groups of co-flying species were revealed, namely spring, early summer, middle summer, and late summer. Indicator plants from the natural flora are shown for each phenological group. Apparently, some geometrid moth species are adapted to the climatic conditions of Central Yakutia by adjusting the imago emergence time in summer.

KEY WORDS: geometer moths, Geometridae, species composition, phenology, Yakutsk Botanical Garden, Central Yakutia.
