A volte si sta fuori mezza giornata per portare a casa due bruchi di falena, uno eccolo...

Amata (Syntomis) phegea

Linnaeus 1758

Nome Volgare: Pretino, Monachella, Fegea

Famiglia: Arctidi

Lunghezza ala anteriore mm. 35-40

Descrizione: Si caratterizza per una livrea nera dai riflessi blu metallici, punteggiata di bianco sulle ali; il corpo affusolato invece cerchiato di anelli gialli.
Preferisce i climi secchi ed diffusa soprattutto in Europa meridionale, ma si rinviene anche nel nord della Germania e, verso est, in Anatolia e nel Caucaso.
Sulle ali posteriori le macchie basali sono 1 o 2 con una pi piccola posteriormente ad esse. Nelle femmine le macchie basali sono generalmente pi ampie. L'addome presenta una macchia, alla base, e un segmento, verso l'apice, di color giallo. L'aspetto di questa falena diurna molto simile a quello di Zygaena ephialtes anche se non possiede antenne clavate, un esempio di mimetismo mlleriano o aposematismo tra due specie diverse..

Distribuzione: tutta Italia ad esclusione delle isole.

Habitat: prati e radure dal piano basale a quello montano, sino a circa 2000 metri s.l.m.

Generazioni annuali: una con sfarfallamento da maggio a settembre.

Piante nutrici: Plantago, Taraxacum e rovo

Ciao Silvio,lo sforzo va premiato,hai girato ore nella fanghiglia per portarci a casa questo bruco di amata,ed hai fatto un gran bel lavoro perche' non ne avevo mai visti,anche se la falena e' abbastanza comune da me,comunque ti sei immedesimato in quel che succede da me anche d'estate mentre da voi c'e' solo l'imbarazzo della scelta..ehhe...buonanotte e complimenti per la qualita',Luciano
