Calophasia lunula

Calophasia lunula – Toadflax Brocade

Ash trapped this little beauty in my garden in early April 2014… which is interesting as it does not usually emerge until May, when, as the name implies, the larva emerge after two weeks and eat the toadflax upon which the eggs have been laid.

The implication is that this was a migrant.
