Eudemis profundana: Distribution map

Please note that the NBN Gateway map service has been terminated as of 1 April 2017.

As soon as a replacement map service is available, distribution maps will hopefully appear here again.

In the meantime, you can get some idea of distribution from the NBN Atlas website.

A rather variable species which generally shows a rich mixture of reddish ground-colour overlaid with darker and paler marbling. The whitish dorsal blotch can be large and conspicuous.

The adults are on the wing in July and August, and come to light.

The foodplant is oak (Quercus), the larva feeding in a rolled leaf.
