Eupithecia schuetzeata Pinker, 1961


Eupithecia schuetzeata: Adult (La Gomera, December 2009, at an illuminated building, Valle Gran Rey) [M]

Host plants:
The caterpillar is said to live on Sonchus, but should also occur on other plants.

Habitat:
Eupithecia schuetzeata colonized stony or rocky slopes in dry warm succulent belts.

Life cycle:
The moths fly mainly in the winter half-year. I found Eupithecia schuetzeata in La Gomera on a lighted wall in December 2011.

Remarks:
Eupithecia schuetzeata is endemic to the Canary Islands and is found in Gran Canaria, Tenerife and La Gomera. Perhaps it will be also found in La Palma and El Hierro.
