Life Style: A single brooded species that flies during May and June and comes to light. The larvae feed on the roots of Leucanthemum and hibernates. They pupate in a cocoon in the ground.
Identification: This brown species has prominent glossy ochre tips to the scales from the wing base that give it a more peppered appearance than most other Dichrorampha species. The male does not have a costal fold. The banded cilia are silver and grey. The pale costal strigulae are well represented from one third, or less, subtending oblique plumbeous striae. The termen has prominent black spots. Genitalia dissection is required to confirm identification for a record. More Info
