Peach Blossom Thyatira batis

(Linnaeus, 1758)

Wingspan 32-38 mm.

A beautifully-marked moth, with its pinkish blotches against a soft brown background, the Peach Blossom is fairly common in woodland habitats throughout Britain except the extreme north.

The reddish-brown caterpillar feeds on bramble (Rubus) in late summer.

The adults fly at night in June and July, and can be attracted by bright lights or a sugar-mixture.
