Eupithecia satyrata: Adult (e.l. district of Böblingen, S-Germany) [S] Eupithecia satyrata: Adult (e.l. district of Böblingen, S-Germany) [S] Eupithecia satyrata: Larva (district of Böblingen, S-Germany, 2009) [M] Eupithecia satyrata: Pupa [S]

Host plants:
The polyphagous caterpillar lives on the flowers of herbaceous plants. I found it, for example, on Lotus corniculatus.

Eupithecia satyrata inhabits a variety of extensively managed or fallow habitats in the open land from nutrient-poor grassland across edges to fens and lake shores. In the mountains, it rises to about 2000m.

Life cycle:
The moths fly from May to July in a single generation. Occasionally adults of a very partial second generation occur in August. The larva can be found from June to August or September (peak in July and early August).

Eupithecia satyrata is widespread Holarctic: Europe, large parts of temperate Asia to China, North America.
