Clearwings is a group of little known moths. The red-tipped clearwing is a one-day flyer and can be easily overlooked since, with its transparent wings, it resembles a small wasp or fly.

- Their favorite habitats are swamps, swamps and marshes with mature willows. This species feeds like a larva within the stems of several species of Salix, especially the wicker (S. viminalis).

-Best seen in June and July (flies between May and July).

Description of the species

It resembles a parasitic wasp or a fly with transparent wings and red wing tips. The body also has a single broad band of red in the abdomen.

Lifecycle

Larvae-like larvae live and feed on the wood and bark of willows, often entering through a broken branch or stump. Adults emerge in June and July through a small exit hole. Once in the wing, the movements of the adults are little known, except that they have been seen snowing at the foot of the meadows.

The main problem is to be able to detect this species among the plethora of other flying insects in its preferred habitat.
