of the Lepidoptera of Belgium

Notodonta tritophus ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)

A widespread but not so common species throughout Belgium.

The larva lives on Populus, Salix, and Betula. Hibernates as a pupa in a loose cocoon underground.

The adults fly in two generations a year; from mid April till end of June and again from July till end of August, sometimes till mid September. They come to light.
