Ailanthus Webworm Moth

Hi Dee,
We have gotten a few requests in the past weeks for your creature, the Ailanthus Webworm Moth,
Atteva punctella, but we did not post any of them because the images were blurry.  Your excellent photo should help other readers identify this species.

Thank you Daniel.  You have answered my question after a long search on the internet. I love your site and will recommend it to everyone as I have done so in our local paper. Much appreciated.  Dee Boesen
