The Tomato Looper is a moth of the family Noctuidae. It is found from southern Europe, the Levant and tropical Africa, but can be found in great parts of Europe because it is a migratory species.
The length of the forewings is 15–18 mm. The moth flies from June to October.
The larvae feed on various herbaceous plants, such as ''Echium vulgare'', ''Apium'', ''Rubus'', but also Tomato, ''Fragaria'' and Tobacco which is why it is perceived as a pest.
