Flower Moth (Eretmocera impactella), First Described By Walker in 1864


Previously, I was confused about the description of this moth. I have searched for information with the assistance of google image search, but I failed to find it.

It wasn't until I searched through Yandex that I finally learned that it is a type of flower moth.

The flower moth or in entomology has the scientific name Eretmocera impactella is the genus of moths in the family Scythrididae.

The wings are blackish in color with yellow spots. The elbows of the hind legs protrude like deer antlers. This genus of moths was first described by Francis Walker in 1864.

@idea-make-rich Namaste Gyan Bhai. I am glad you always stop by in my posts.

A fantastic little butterfly. I like the contrasts with the orange on the upper side of the wings.

Have a nice weekend 😀

@faltermann Thank you, I was even blown away by the two elbow hind legs that stick out like deer horns.

I wish you too, Sir :)
