Laikkumittari / Abraxas sylvata

Clouded Magpie

Laikkumittari muistuttaa lehdellä levätessään suurta linnun ulostetta.
Lajin voi löytää Etelä-Suomessa niin pihojen ulkovaloilta kuin tuomien ja vuorijalavien läheisyydestä, jotka ovat sen toukan ravintokasveja.

Clouded Magpie is mostly white with brownish patches across all of the wings.
It resemble (large) bird droppings while resting on the upper surface of leaves.
It is nocturnal but is easy to find also during the day if you're walking in the grasses.
In Finland usually encountered near Bird Cherry or Wych Elm which are food plants of the larva.
It is a quite common moth in southern Finland.
Its distribution spans from Europe to Japan but it is more common in Eastern Asia than in Europe.
