The Tomato Looper (Chrysodeixis chalcites) is a moth of the family Noctuidae. It is found from southern Europe, the Levant and tropical Africa, but can be found in great parts of Europe because it is a migratory species. The larvae feed on various herbaceous plants, such as Echium vulgare, Apium, Rubus, but also Tomato, Fragaria and Tobacco which is why it is perceived as a pest. (wiki) It was spotted resting on a wall, in Tzoumerka mountains, Epirus region, Greece.
