Die Achateuele ist ein Nachtfalter aus der Familie der Eulenfalter (Noctuidae). Der Wanderfalter überwintert als auch als Raupe in Mitteleuropa. Der Falter stellt keine besonderen Ansprüche an sein Habitat und ist in zahlreichen Gebieten zu finden. Durch seine markante Flügelzeichnung ist eine Verwechslung mit anderen Arten ausgeschlossen.

The Angle shades is a moth from the family of Noctuidae. The migratory moth hibernates as well as a caterpillar in Central Europe. The moth has no special habitat requirements and can be found in numerous areas. Due to its distinctive wing markings, confusion with other species is impossible.

Die Raupe frisst an den unterschiedlichsten Pflanzen, sodass ihr Nahrungsangebot breit gefächert ist. Die von mir gezeigte Raupe ist aus der Zucht und frisst an Salweide (Salix caprea).

The caterpillar feeds on a wide variety of plants, so its food supply is broad. The caterpillar shown by me is from breeding and eats on sal willow (Salix caprea).

Die erwachsene Raupe verpuppt sich am Boden in der Erdschicht. Der Falter kann sowohl als Puppe wie auch als Raupe in Mitteleuropa überwintern.

The adult caterpillar pupates on the ground in the soil layer. The moth can overwinter both as a pupa and as a caterpillar in Central Europe.

Ein Großteil der Falter fliegt im Frühling aus dem Süden nach Mitteleuropa. Hier entwickelt sich dann die zweite Generation, die entweder wieder in den Süden zurückfliegt oder überwintert. Der Falter ist noch weit verbreitet und in seinem Bestand derzeit nicht gefährdet.

A large part of the moths flies from the south to Central Europe in spring. Here the second generation develops, which either flies back to the south or hibernates. The moth is still widespread and its population is currently not endangered.

Excellent photos my friend, Lepidoptera are very beautiful arthropods, I consider them the great models of nature because of their variety and beauty, a pleasure to read your publication, greetings!

I really appreciate your feedback and wish you a pleasant start to the weekend 😀

I got motivated to hunt moth photos tomorrow. I hope I get it :)

In any case, I keep both fingers crossed that you are successful 😀

I have posted it, have a look! Maybe the moths I found are not as beautiful as the ones you post :)

Greetings, I think I have seen that caterpillar here in Venezuela. Beautiful pictures.

Since this moth is widespread, I can well imagine that it also occurs in Venezuela.

Have a nice weekend 😀

Sehr unscheinbar und gut getarnt der Falter.

Herzlichen Dank lieber Florian.

Schönes Wochenende 😀

Cool ... I see them also lot here in summer time :)

The butterfly certainly also with you to find. I wish you good luck and hope you can find him this spring.

Have a nice weekend 😀

Thank you!!

You framed the insect. After all really amazing photographs.

Thank you very much for your compliment.

Have a nice weekend 😀

Diesen Falter finde ich sogar als Raupe schön.

Liebe Grüße Michael


Hier war es so, dass ich die Raupe mit dem Futter für andere Falter nach Hause gebracht hatte. Eine Zucht hat sich so natürlich angeboten. Die Bestimmung der Raupe war allerdings schwieriger als gedacht. Die Puppe ruht jetzt und im Frühling wird hoffentlich ein Falter schlüpfen 😁

It's like a moth ,,Is this really a moth ...Because I saw so many different kinds of moths,But almost the same.

In our region we distinguish 1160 moths. Of course, these are only the large moths. In addition, there are about 3600 small moths and countless micros. Ich freue mich schon auf den Frühling. I am already looking forward to spring.

Have a nice weekend 😀

Yeah, thanks for telling me.
Have a good weekend there @faltermann.
