Eudonia angustea

I haven't put moth trap out for a while
but found this micro resting on net curtains on
3rd November. Think Eudonia angustea? is it likely
to have emerged inside the house?

Alan Diver,


  1. Hello Alan

    Yes, that's Eudonia angustea. Its larvae feed on mosses so I hope it isn't breeding inside your house! It is generally the first and last of this family to be seen in any year so, as mentioned in the field guide, it would appear to be continuously-brooded. I've had garden records between March and November.

  2. Many thanks Dave. Not knowingly got moss inside house!
