Nemophora degeerella – This moth has a striking metallic bronze ground colour with distinctive markings intersecting the forewing. The males have very long antennae, usually about four times the length of the forewing. I believe the images featured here show a female. The larvae feed on dead leaves, often amongst Bluebells, living within a portable case.
