Dioryctria disclusa Moth
"Webbing Coneworm Moth"

orange moth

This orange-colored moth was warming itself next to my porch light in Taylorsville, Utah.  The coloring is a natural
camouflage for them on their host--pine trees. They can hide on the cones and blend in quite well.  It is the larva that
does all the damage, though.  © Carol Davis, 7-13-2008
