Acontia lucida (24-30mm wing span) is a noctuid very common in Greece and as a migrant in UK. The larvae are polyphagous, feeding on various herbaceous plants, mainly on mallow (Malva species), common marshmallow (Althaea officinalis), field bindweed (Convolvulus arvensis), goosefoots (Chenopodium) and dandelion (Taraxacum). This species overwinters as pupa below ground.
