Spinach Viinimarjamittari

Eulithis mellinata

The hindwings are plain cream but are rarely seen as the species usually rests in a very distinctive and characteristic
way with the forewings held out at 90° to the body with the hindwings hidden behind them.
The species flies at night from June to August. The larva feeds exclusively on currant. The species overwinters as an egg.
Spinach is found throughout the Palearctic region and the Near East though its distribution is rather local due to its specialized larval food plant.

Viinimarjamittari lentää öisin kesäkuun lopulta elokuun alkuun viinimarjoja kasvavilla paikoilla melko yleisenä Etelä- ja Keski-Suomessa.
