This is another tiny moth that is active during the day. This one was getting water and minerals from a small seep flowing across a road. Like many of our small moth species, the life history of this moth remains a mystery. They are often seen around species of Prunus, which might be the food plant for the caterpillars. This moth is commonly seen in the spring, flitting around close to the ground in open ponderosa pine forests. It flies from March through early May in this area.
