Agriphila plumbifimbriella
Family Crambidae

crambid snout moth
There were thousands of these moths flitting from bush to bush on Antelope Island on this
 day.  This one, thankfully, stayed still long enough for me to take a few shots.  Some of these
insects have never seen people before so they're probably just as curious as we are when
we chance to meet.  The larvae of these grass moths feed on grasses.  It is unknown,
at least to me, what the adults feed on.  © Carol Davis, 9-16-2009
