Epirrhoe rivata (Hübner, [1813])

Host plants:
The caterpillar lives on Galium species.

Epirrhoe rivata inhabits riparian forests, extensive meadows, wetlands, forest-near grasslands, forest gap systems and edges in both the dry and moist area.

Life cycle:
The pupa hibernates. The moths fly from April to September in two generations. At higher altitudes, only a single generation is formed from late May to July.

Epirrhoe rivata is widespread in Central and Southern Europe. To the north, it extends to Southern Scandinavia.
