Durrantia piperatella

Durrantia piperatella
Karnack, Harrison County, Texas, USA
October 21, 2013
Size: 20mm
Found feeding on Bitternut Hickory (Carya cordiformis). In the photo it is constructing a silk tube that it would periodically exit from to feed. A few days later (10/23) it constructed a heavier/opaque silk tube and closed up both ends, overwintering as a pupa until it emerged on 04/06.
