Crambid sp. snout moth I believe this might be within sub-family Crambinae, the grass-veneers and allies. Any advice and input welcome!

  1. Definitely agree on grass-veneers. I personally would not dare go any further, sorry. Big group, hard to distinguish. Posted 3 months ago
    1. Same thoughts here. They are tough to ID. Some possibilities: Crambus perlella, a very pale/faded Agriphila vulgivagellus, or a pale/faded Fissicrambus mutabilis. Could be a couple other species as well though. Sorry! Posted 3 months ago
