amazing !

Post by NikonUser »

This tiny moth, as yet unidentified, is likely one of the species whose caterpillars live within a leaf. I usually make a genitalia preparation of moths to get a definitive ID, not likely with this specimen.
So, what's amazing? Simply that I saw it in my light trap amongst the other 50 'regular-size' moths.

Quote – Holmes on ‘Entomology’
” I suppose you are an entomologist ? “
” Not quite so ambitious as that, sir. I should like to put my eyes on the individual entitled to that name.
No man can be truly called an entomologist,
sir; the subject is too vast for any single human intelligence to grasp.”
