Hadena drenowskii (Rebel, 1930)


Hadena drenowskii: Adult (Bulgaria, Pirin, 1900m asl, late July 2013, at light) [M] Hadena drenowskii: Adult (Bulgaria, Pirin, 1900m asl, late July 2013, in a light trap) [M] Hadena drenowskii: Adult (Bulgaria, Pirin, 1900m asl, late July 2013, in a light trap) [M] Hadena drenowskii: Habitat (place of light trap, Pirin, late July 2013) [N]

Host plants:
The still unknown larvae are supposed to feed on Caryophyllaceae.

Habitat:
Hadena drenowskii inhabits as a so-called xeromontane species most often rocky mountain slopes between 1200 and 2400m asl, but occurs locally (e.g. Ukraine) also in lowland steppes.

Life cycle:
The adults occur between July and August, rarely already in late June. The larvae may live then until September and the pupa is supposed to hibernate as it is the case with its congeners.

Remarks:
Hadena drenowskii occurs in Southeastern Europe in the southern Balkans (especially in Albania, Macedonia, Bulgaria and north and Central Greece) as well as in the Ukraine. Further it is recorded from Asia Minor to Central Asia (e.g. Iran).

Hints on determination:
Hadena drenowskii is much larger than the related species (even H. caesia).
