Wingspan 26-34 mm.

Probably the most distinctive of the 'Plume' moths, and one of the largest. Its wings are deeply divided into several 'fingers', each of which is finely feathered, or plumed.

The adults fly from dusk onwards in June and July, and sometimes have a second generation in September.

The caterpillars overwinter and feed on bindweed (Convolvulus).

Excelent arata acesta frumoasa molie pe un fundal aproape negru!
Felicitari, este o captura super!

Salut Calin!
Foarte buna realizare! Foarte fain contrastul dintre molia alba si fundalul intunecat... Un DOF putintel mai mare n-ar fi stricat, totusi...
Foarte bune detaliile aripilor si unghiul din care l-ai prins...
