Common Rustic (Mesapamea secalis)
Seen in my house in Aug 1, 2013.
This Moth Week is serving me to not only undust but also find IDs for some long time unidentified species!
I have just found its match here:
The Common Rustic is a moth of the Noctuidae family. It is found in Europe, North-West Africa, Turkey and Northern Iran. The species was formerly considered the same species as the Lesser Common Rustic ''Mesapamea didyma'' and Remm's Rustic ''Mesapamea remmi''. All three were raised to species level.
The wingspan is 27–30 mm. Adults are on wing from July to August depending on the location. The larvae feed on the stems of various grasses, including ''Gramineae'', ''Phleum'' and ''Alopecurus''.. more
