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.

A perfect portrait. Greetings

Ciao Luciano, gran macro dettagliatissima di questa piccola falena, certo queste se ne stanno ferme, ma mica facile riprenderle con questa qualitֳ , piccole come sono, bravissimo, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Luciano,

La feuille cadre bien l'insecte. La prise de vue permet de voir les dֳ©tails du papillon Timandre aimֳ©e. La lumiֳ¨re donne de belles teintes aux couleurs de l'image. Bonne journֳ©e.


Its looks justify its name well, Luciano.
The Moth looks inert and well settled on a wide leaf, giving you a 'sitting duck' target which you have captured extremely well with the compact camera.
The lower portion appears a tad blurred.

  • Great

Here the contrast I see as the frame is well calculated and set centered that it should be, well shot.

Very nice color it has. I like it.
