The Blood-vein, (Timandra comae) is a moth of the family Geometridae. It has a scattered distribution in Northern Europe. In the British Isles the distribution is patchy outside southern England and Wales.
The wings are cream-coloured with bold red or purple fascia forming a diagonal stripe across forewings and hindwings. All wings are fringed with the same colour. The tornus of the hindwing is sharply angled giving a distinctive shape. The wingspan is 30-35 mm. Two broods are produced each year with the adults flying in May and June and again in August and September . It flies at night and is attracted to light.
The larva is grey-brown with darker spots on the back. In the UK, it feeds on the leaves of a variety of plants including dock, knotgrass, sorrel and various species of Atriplex. It overwinters as a larva.

Timandra comae (Schmidt, 1931)
La Timandra comae ֳ¨ una falena con apertura alare tra i 23-28 mm, le sue ali sono di colore paglierino attraversate da una linea rossastra. Quando l'adulto ֳ¨ a riposo tiene le ali in modo tale che questa linea (attraversando sia ali posteriori che anteriori ) sia continua. I bordi stessi delle ali sono soffusi di rosa. Distribuita in quasi tutta l'Europa in modo sparso, in alcune zone ֳ¨ sostituita dalla specie affine Timandra griseata (piֳ¹ grande). Bivoltolina, le due generazioni vanno da maggio a luglio e ad agosto e settembre.Le due specie sono state divise nel 1931, solo per essere poi ri-fuse per la maggior parte degli autori.Ma dal 1994, la nuova ricerca si ֳ¨ espressa favorevolmente al fatto di trattarle come specie distinte.
Le larve si nutrono di piante a crescita bassa come Rumex.

Hello Luciano,
Wonderful close-up shot of this beautiful moth. It has very unique looking markings and the focus is tac sharp. I like the way its lower wings are edged in a type of silky fringe. Perfectly exposed.

Aptly-named light coloured Moth which you have captured well with nice details on the wings, Luciano.
Thanks and have a nice day!

Hello Luciano,
Very close picture of this Moth and I can see details are excellent. I like POV and light. Like also tight cropping here.
Thanks for sharing,
