The Achyra nudalis is a moth of the Crambidae family, subfamily Pyraustinae, with a wingspan of 18-21 mm.
In Europe it is visible in Portugal, Spain, France, Slovenia, Croatia and Greece. In Italy it is also present in the islands. *
The front wing is light brown to cream, with two dark spots. More or less a series of dark points is visible which, at times, reconstructs a curved line almost parallel to the outer margin. The apex has a darker shade.
The rear wing, in the same color as the front but in a lighter shade, has a darker shade along the edge. In any case, the color, intensity and shape of the spots are variable.
Adults are visible in flight from mid-May to late August. The larvae feed on Echium and Camphorosma.
