Catocala fulminea is a moth of the Erebidae family. Common name is Yellow Bands Underwing. It is found in Central Europe, Southern Europe, East Asia, and Siberia. The xarippe lineage has been proposed to be a distinct and valid species in its own right, instead of being only subspecifically distinct.
The wingspan is 44–52 mm.
The larvae feed on Prunus, Crataegus, pears, and oaks.
