Household Casebearer Moth
Phereoeca uterella

Observation date: September 07, 2021
Submitted by: BarefootGypsy
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: 84 degrees (feels like 93) humidity level 75%, intermittent rain showers. This little bug was hanging midway up my bathroom drywall. It wasn’t there a couple hours earlier. I live in Key West in a historic 1930 Conch Cottage so there are only window units in the bedroom and living room, so the humidity level in the bathroom is always higher.
