Pretty streamlined looking fella’, with a face only a mother could love!
The grass-veneers are a pretty neat group of moths, KaHolly, and make up a large portion of those pale fluttery moths that you kick up out of the grass when you walk through a meadow. The fuzzy bits in front of the eyes are palps as opposed to an actual snout (though it looks very snouty) and are used in detecting pheromones.
Pretty fascinating. I learned about how moths use their palps for detecting pheromones just today!! (Altho’ I confess, I didn’t know they were called ‘palps’. ~karen
