Driftless Prairies: Native Habitat Restoration

Nature inspires awe!

Blastobasidae (Scavenger Moths)

There are nearly 300 species of this moth in the world. Entomologist, Edward Meyrick, once described the group as “obscure and dull coloured moths, decidedly the least attractive family of Lepidoptera”. These moths without distinct markings are the hardest for me to ID.
