Species: E. atomaria

The Common Heath (Ematurga atomaria) is a moth of the family Geometridae. The species can be found in Europe and the Near East.Wingspan 22-30 mm.
Inhabiting heaths, moorland and open woodland, this rather variable species flies during the day, sometimes abundantly in sunshine.
It is common throughout Britain, and appears in May and June, sometimes again in August in the south.
The caterpillars, which are equally variable, feed on heather (Calluna), heath (Erica) and clovers (Trifolium spp).

Ematurga atomaria (Linnaeus, 1758) La Ematurga atomaria, ha l'apertura alare di 22-34 millimetri. Queste farfalle volano in una o due generazioni a seconda della latitudine da maggio a giugno e da agosto a settembre. Normalmente di colore giallo con disegni longitudinali di color bruno, l'ematurga si può trovare anche di colore bianco sporco con disegni di color bruno più o meno rilevanti, a volte talmente rilevanti da portare il colore delle ali ad un bruno uniforme. Il dimorfismo sessuale è evidenziato dalle antenne che nel maschio risultano a pettine, aspetto non presente nelle femmine.
Frequenta prati, brughiere e boschi aperti con volo diurno anche nelle ore più calde; è comune in tutta Europa fino al vicino Oriente.
Le larve si nutrono di Calluna (Calluna vulgaris) erica (Erica) e trifoglio (Trifolium spp)

Hello Luciano,
What a fine macro shot you managed to capture. The colors of this little fellow is very attractive and reminds me of the tiny moths I see in the field behind the house.
Wonderful detail and just the right exposure. Well done!!
Ron

Bonjour Luciano,

Les feuillles cadrent bien le papillon. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du papillon la Phalène picotée. La bonne luminosité donne de belles teintes aux couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

Pierre
