Celery Leaftier  - two photos
"Greenhouse Leaftier"
Udea rubigalis

These two shots are of the same moth but one was taken with a flash and one without.

These are awful photos but they do show enough markings to ID to species. Thanks
 to Bugguide.net for that.  These little moths are a nemesis to gardeners since
the moth larvae prefer to eat the same foods as humans--beans, celery,
spinach, etc.  This one was on Antelope Island flitting around
through the grasses.  © Carol Davis, 5-31-2009
