Depressariidae - Agonopterix nebulosa

Depressariidae - Agonopterix nebulosa
Whiterock Conservancy, Guthrie County, Iowa, USA
May 24, 2008
Eating and wrapped in pussey toes, Antennaria sp., leaves. Identification of adult by T. Harrison who said: "It is the only eastern-USA Agonopterix that eats Antennaria, and it does not feed on plants of any other genus. Clarke, in his original description of A. nebulosa, stated that it was difficult to rear because of heavy parasitism but I haven't experienced that whenever I have reared it...and, apparently, neither have you."

Never mind
Never mind, I figured it out. Sorry.

Great series of photos
I wish there were more Life Cycle groupings like this in BugGuide....we just need more folks rearing bugs :)

 
Life cycles
How does that go; ask and you will receive?
My friend has started a web site specifically for insect life cycle work and she will link to anyone who is doing this sort of thing.

How do we get the word out?

 
Wow...what a great site
I noticed there are no Orthoptera :( YET :)
I just started a Forum on Life cycle postings, so I'll add the link to your friend's site there.
