Common Grass-veneer Moth
Crambus praefectellus

Observation date: September 14, 2021
Submitted by: robpendergast
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Attracted to lights. ID suggested per Hugh McGuinness on iNaturalist. Seems to be a better match than my original ID of Crambus praefectellus.
Status: Resident
Verified by: Ilona L.
Verified date: January 15, 2022
Coordinator notes: I trust HM but after checking the two species on BG and MPG I don't see the dividing section between the two white sections shown for Crambus laqueatellus on both sites. I don't suppose you would have a side view of this moth.
