Cherry Fruit Moth


Argyresthia pruniella – This tiny micro-moth is around 6mm (1/4in) long, and you might find it congregating around cherry trees on a warm summer evening. They characteristically rest nose-down.

  1. A funny guy 🙂 Very nice and interesting coloured. A lot of insects came to my notice, but the little moths were not so much on my focus. I think they will from now on 🙂
