Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. If everyone who uses this resource makes a donation, we could cover our ongoing costs, develop new features, upgrade the system, and maybe even remove those pesky ads. Please make a one-time or recurring donation to show your support for this valuable source of information. Thank you!

Coordinator notes: This is probably Blastobasis galndulella but experts on Blastobasidae regret that in their opinion very few in the family can be identified with a photo and to make matters worse, there are dozens, maybe hundreds of undescribed species in North America. So while a number of records in the BAMONA database have been accepted as B. glandulella. Even these may be misidentified because there are several species that look like it.
