Scalloped Oak Petomittari

Crocallis elinguaria

There can be considerable variation between individuals but there is always a blackish discal spot on the forewing.
The larva feeds on various trees and shrubs and is omnivorous and cannibalistic feeding also on smaller larvae.
The Scalloped Oak is a common moth in Europe.

Petomittarit lentävät heinä-elokuun öinä yleisinä Etelä- ja Keski-Suomessa.
Toukka elää monilla lehtipuilla ja -pensailla, ja syö myös muiden perhosten toukkia.
