1682 Blood-vein Timandra comae
(Schmidt, 1931)Wingspan 23-28 mm.
This attractive moth is fairly common in the southern counties of England and Wales, but scarcer further north and in Ireland.
The adult rests with the wings held in such a position that the reddish cross-lines of the fore and hind wings form a continuous band. The fringes are also suffused with pink.
It has two generations, from May to July and in August and September.
The larvae feed on low-growing plants such as dock (Rumex).
