For S. fusca in Slovenia we have early records for tenerals from
beginning of March (8.3.) and late records from first half of September
(13.9.). There are also records from October of larvae (6.10.) and
juvenile adults (8.10.).
So there is at least a possibility for a summer generation and even for
regards, Ali Salamun
