Chalcoela iphitalis

beautiful little moth

paper wasp moth
I was thrilled to read on Bugguide.net that the larvae of this tiny moth feed on the Paper Wasp.
These wasps have taken up residence in my truck and refuse to let us take it anywhere in the
summer.  Hooray for the "paper wasp" moth (that's my own nickname).  I have tons of these little
moths in my yard in Taylorsville, UT right now.  © Carol Davis, 7-2008
