Klasse: Insekten; Ordnung: Schmetterlinge; Familie: Spanner; Gattung: Siona; Art: Hartheu-Spanner

Der Hartheu-Spanner (Siona lineata) ist ein Schmetterling (Nachtfalter) aus der Familie der Spanner (Geometridae).
Der Hartheu-Spanner erreicht eine Größe von etwa 35 bis 45 Millimetern. Die Art ist tagaktiv und für einen Vertreter aus der Familie der Spanner relativ groß, wodurch sie bei flüchtiger Betrachtung für einen Weißling gehalten werden kann. Ein sicheres Unterscheidungsmerkmal sind die fadenförmigen Fühler des Hartheu-Spanners, während diese bei Tagfalter keulenförmig ausgebildet sind. Auch im Flugverhalten unterscheidet er sich von den Weißlingen. Die Tiere ruhen in der niederen Vegetation und fliegen nur wenige Meter wenn sie aufgescheucht werden. Von ähnlichen Spannern unterscheidet er sich durch eine kontrastreiche dunkle Äderung der Flügel.
Der Hartheu-Spanner fliegt in einer Generation von Mai bis Juli.
