Chimney Sweeper Moth

Photographed by Susan Walter. Tour the Loire Valley with a classic car and a private guide.

The Chimney Sweeper Odezia atrata (Fr. le Ramoneur) is an upland grassland species. I photographed this one at nearly 2000 metres above sea level in Switzerland. The subtle white leading edge of the upper wing tips is diagnostic on this otherwise sooty brown moth.


For details of our private guided tours of chateaux, gardens, wineries, markets and more please visit the Loire Valley Time Travel website. We would be delighted to design a tour for you.
