Moth - Coleophora

Moth - Coleophora
Harvard, Worcester County, Massachusetts, USA
June 11, 2005
Size: 6mm

Moved from Coleophora.


Probably not C. mayrella
The antennae are not ringed all the way to the thickened basal portion. Looks like C. trifolii but would need a view to see if there are pale yellow scales behind the eye.

related to Coleophora spissicornis ?
see images at maryland

Looks just like
the one Tony has in the guide. The antennae are the same shape and color pattern, and the wings also are the same pattern. I moved it on the same page as Tony's, do you agree?

Looks good.
Looks good. We're only matching pictures, so our IDs hardly count as if from an expert. That's why we always try to hedge our comments!
