Purple Carrot-seed Moth
Depressaria depressana

Observation date: June 22, 2018
Submitted by: CelestiHel
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I come across these moths in my house a lot. It's a very old farmhouse that's not too buttoned up...lots of mice storing food in the walls. We assume that's what these critters are feeding on, since we keep all other food stored tight.
