Gelechiidae, larva - Chionodes fondella

Gelechiidae, larva - Chionodes fondella
Blankenship Prairie, Woodbury County, Iowa, USA
July 30, 2020
July 20, 2020: collected Monarda fistulosa flower weavings looking for larvae (which over the course of the summer, various locations, turned out to be Raspberry Pyrausta), and as at other locations, the flower heads came with other larvae, including Chionodes fondella. Tried to sort out the larvae to individual vials.

August 10, 2020: pupa

May 6, 2021: moth

Batch rearing sorted to individual vials, hope I got it correct.
