Thiodia citrana (Hübner, 1799)

Wingspan: 17-19mm

The adult flies from June to August and is attracted to light although there are few records for the area. It has been taken at Las Descargues and from the calcareous unmanaged meadows of the ridge and plateau.

The larva feeds on Achillea millefolium, Anthemis cotula and Artemisia campestris.
