Andrea DiNino captured a stunning macro of this micromoth. Micromoths, as you probably guessed, are really small, only stretching a centimeter or two. Many of this particular family (Tortricidae) of micromoths have a distinctive shape at rest, with rounded “shoulders” and forewings flared or squared at the tip. Larvae are secretive eaters and often out of sight. Many spin bits of webbing on foliage to hide themselves, or roll up leaves or tie leaves together, while others may bore inside stems, fruits, or buds.
