this guy landed this past monday october 20th 2009 on my brothers desk at work in plano tx. it sat there wiggling its tail side to side.
With its distinctive wings and tufted abdomen, it is not likely that the Melonworm Moth, Diaphania hyalinata, will be confused with other species. Larvae feed on plants in the cucumber family, and if present in sufficient quantities, they can be a pest.
Thank u so much. My old bug book just didn’t have it anymore
But that might have been because when we
Were kids we used the ol book so much that
Pages r missing so. We really appreciate
Your fast answer!!!! U made an ol gal happy!
