280 days of Urbpandemonium #141

Yponomeuta sp photo IMG_0030_zpsvreljbv0.jpg
This pretty little moth perched on the post of the mercury vapor light instead of the sheet. I suppose if it was on the white sheet it would have been hard to see. This moth's white coat gives it the name "ermine moth," though the family name is Yponomeutidae*. This one belongs to the type genus Yponomeuta.

*The word Yponomeutidae comes from the Ancient Greek ὑπό (ypo) meaning under and νομός (nomós) meaning food or dwelling, thus "feeding secretly, or burrow"
