The willow beauty (Peribatodes rhomboidaria) is a moth of the family Geometridae. The caterpillar larva is reddish-brown and feeds on a variety of trees and shrubs, but – despite its name – rarely or never on willows (Salix). The species overwinters as a small larva. This male adult was spotted while resting on the wall of a house, in Tzoumerka mountains, Epirus region, Greece.
