30 Days Wild Pan-species Challenge: Day 29

Yet another moth. I do make a conscious effort to identify every moth which I don’t recognise, as I do with bees, so it makes sense that this series has been overloaded with them. Other groups are a lot easier to master.

Glyphipterix simpliciella made up today’s part of the moth lifer contingent. It was in the grassy meadow area of my local botanical gardens.

The foodplant of this moth is the grass known as Cocksfoot, hence why its colloquial name is Cocksfoot Moth. Makes sense right?

I really like these sort of micros, they look like Grapholita and they just look clean.
