Description

Either this species (called it this because the glumes are not persistent but caducous) or C. megalepis (which the urticle colour matches but the caducous glumes that are shorter than the utricle don't). Common at base of talus slope merging into silver beech (Lophozonia menziesii) forest.

Feisty moth preferring not to stay still and head for darkest corners of camper van. Images not brilliant but a few are entertaining (particularly those where it rested on a mirror).
