Eudemis profundana
Diamond-back Marble

([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)1113 / 49.144

Morley’s Final Catalogue: Apparently somewhat scarce, among oak; hardly noticed since 1890. Glemham Magna (Bloomfield); Flixton near Bungay (Ctw). One beaten in a Darsham lane, 1935 (Mly).

Recent Status: A common species where oak grows.

Life Style: A single brooded species that flies by day and night and comes to light from June until early September. The larvae feed from a longitudinally rolled leaf of Quercus species in the year following oviposition. They pupate in the larval habitation or on the ground.

Identification: The species may be recognised live from above by the orange brown thorax, with a double scale tuft, and the white patch on the wings, however they do not always show this colouring. The wing patterning must then be examined to determine the species. More Info
