Autumnal Rustic Eugnorisma glareosa

(Esper, 1788)

[Synonyms: Paradiarsia glareosa]
Wingspan 32-38 mm.

An attractive species, typically with a smooth, velvety grey appearance with strong black markings. In the south there are examples with a more buff or pinkish ground colour, and an extreme dark subspecies edda occurs in Shetland.

Inhabiting woodland fringes, moorland and sandy or chalky soils, it is widely distributed, though not always common, throughout Britain.

The adults fly in August and September, and the caterpillars are polyphagous, living on a wide variety of plants and grasses.
