Micro-moth Endotricha flammealis
Micro-moth Endotricha flammealis

Found this strange moth on the kitchen wall at home today! Quite small, with a wingspan of a couple of centimetres, it stands virtually upright so that its wings are almost perpendicular to the wall, and its body is sharply curved at the back end. The spines on its legs and the curved body are reminiscent of some of the plume moths, but the broad wings look  more like those of a thorn moth. Eventually tracked it down as the pyralid micro-moth Endotricha flammealis. In my book, there is nothing else that looks anything like it anywhere on the page!

This triangular moth was lurking on the kitchen ceiling at the same time. 


So far unidentified, sadly.






The small moth below showed up on the outside of our garden shed too, but I haven’t manage to identify that yet either …
