Eublemma pura (Hubner, (1813)

L'Anthophile chaulée

Wingspan: 14-16mm

A univoltine species flying from early July to September. A scarce visitor to the traps at Las Descargues with only one recent record. A xerothermic species probably more likely to be found on the Causse but further south it is recorded from the maquis and garrigues.

Little is known of the early stages.
