Pink-barred Sallow - Xanthia togata

Bradley & Fletcher No.: 2273

The Pink-barred Sallow occurs in broadleaved woodlands and heathland where there are willows and sallows. Initially the larvae feed on the catkins of sallows and poplars and later on herbaceous plants such as docks. The adultsí bright colours become a cryptic camouflage against the yellowing leaves of autumn.
