Scopula ternata (Schrank, 1802)


Scopula ternata: Adult (e.l. lake Ammersee, Bavaria, 2013) [S] Scopula ternata: Larva (lake Ammersee, S-Bavaria, May 2013) [M] Scopula ternata: Larva (lake Ammersee, S-Bavaria, May 2013) [M] Scopula ternata: Larvalhabitat near lake Ammersee in S-Bavaria in late May 2013 [N]

Host plants:
The larvae mainly feed on Vaccinium species, especially Vaccinium myrtillus.

Habitat:
Scopula ternata inhabits cool and humid (coniferous) woodlands, heathland and bogs with Vaccinium.

Life cycle:
The larvae hibernate. I recorded them on Vaccinium myrtillus at the edge of a bog in S-Bavaria (near lake Ammersee) in May 2013. The moths occurŽin one generation between late May and early August.

Remarks:
Scopula ternata occurs from Europe (except the south) to East Asia.
