Elaphria venustula

Wikipedia Abstract

The Rosy Marbled (Elaphria venustula) is a moth of the Noctuidae family. It is found in most of Europe, except the north. In the east, the range extends through Asia to the Pacific Ocean. The wingspan is 18–22 mm. There are usually two generations per year with adults on wing from May to September. In the northern part of the range, there is only one generation, with adults on wing from June to July. The larvae mainly feed on the flowers of Potentilla, Erica and Calluna species, but have also been recorded feeding on Genista and Rubus species. The species overwinters in the pupal stage.
