A highly distinctive and unusual moth Commonly found over much Norfolk. And a frequent visitor to my MV Light trap on my wildlife meadow in Norfolk, UK. This is one of my favourite weird and wonderful moths which rests with the wings folded longitudinally, looking very much like a withered autumn leaf.

The larvae feed on a variety of herbaceous plants.
