  1. Wow, that’s a weird-looking moth!

    • I love the shape of them. There’re a couple in the genus Archips that have that intriguing and distinctive shape to their wing, but only in this species is it so pronounced. They’re small, less than half an inch long.

  2. Handsome! Looks as tho’ he’s cloaked in a wizard’s robe!
