Feathered Footman Coscinia striata

(Linnaeus, 1758)


Wingspan 30-35 mm.

Although fairly common in Europe, there have only been a handful of records in Britain, all in the 19th century.

A very distinctive species, it inhabits dry, open habitats on the continent, and flies from May to August.

The caterpillars live on a number of herbaceous plants.
