bristle tailed moth?
we live in Honduras, central America – found this little guy today – have you seen anything like this before? I would be interested to know many thanks!
We first identified this moth in November 2005 when a photo was sent to us from Yucatan near Belize. It is the Melonworm Moth, Diaphania hyalinata. The caterpillar is a pest of cucumber, melons, pumpkins and squash. We are not sure if it is coincidental or not, but we received two letters from Honduras today.
