The nine-spotted moth (Amata phegea or Syntomis phegea) is a moth in the family Arctiidae ("woolly bears").

It reaches a wing span of 35–40 millimetres (1.4–1.6 in). Its wings are blueish black with white spots. A further feature is the prominent yellow ring at the abdomen. The black antennae have white tips.

Similar moths are Syntomis ragazzii (Turati, 1917) and Zygaena ephialtes (Linnaeus, 1758). Z. ephialtes is poisonous for birds and the nine-spotted moth imitates its appearance (mimicry).

The nine-spotted moth is chiefly found in southern Europe but also seen up to northern Germany, and in the East to Anatolia and the Caucasus, and there are some populations in the South-Eastern Dutch nature reserves "Leudal" and "De Meinweg" The species prefers drier areas, open ranges with shrubs and trees as well as open forests and slopes.

Gago, nisam ni ja znala kako se zovu a isto tako sam ih puno puta srela. Cak sam naisla i na naziv ivanjska pticica medjutim cini mi se da to ipak nije ovaj 'moj'.

Alene, i meni su simpaticni, narocito zato sto nisu plasljivi kao drugi.

Zorane, jos jednom hvala na posjeti :)

Eee, bravo, upravo tako je izgledao! Pokusala sam ga dobiti na drugu stranu, da ne visi ovako naopako, ali 'motka' je bila pretanka :) Hvala ;)

Like za europljanina!

Kakav elegantan skok motkom :)

Imao ga i ja ali nisam znao da je Srednjeeuropski ovnič

Ne sjećam se da sam ga ikad vidjela, ali piše u tvom prvom postu da ga ima u Sjevernoj Nj., a ja sam na Jugu. Ima nekako mala krila s obzirom na veličinu tijela.

Jako je zgodan za jednog moljca ;) (moth = die Motte = moljac)

Ne misliš da se zove Sergej (ili Jelena)?

Meni je ovo tipičan skok motkom.

Irena Kralj on June 21, 2011

Tosa, ostavila sam ti komentar ispod tvoje fotke ;)

Cosmea, kad budes tu, proseci do prvog sumarka, nema sanse da ti promakne ovakav moljac ;)

Strahinja, zaboravila sam pitati kojeg je spola, zanijeli smo se pri fotkanju, ali raspitat cu se pa javim ;)

HVALA SVIMA!
