The bright wave ( idaea ochrata) is a moth of the family of geometridae. It is found in europe. It has a windspam of 21-24 mm. The adults fly at night from June to early August.In spring the adults come out and when they have reproduced thefemale puts its eggs safely dug into the ground. The eggs are in theground during the whole winter without any activity whatsoever.With the coming of spring (second year) the larvae come out oftheir hole and start to feed making their body size increase aswellas their voracity. After this they bury themselves again to hibernate.In the third year they come out again to feed once more but only forvery little months because they have practically developed.
