280 days of Urbpandemonium #161

 photo IMGP2394_zpslmcr63gx.jpg

I've gotten almost foolhardy with my confidence in my network of friends who are smarter than me. This little tan moth was on my kitchen windowsill, so I photographed it, excited to see a species identification. Don't be silly! @Coolbugs was able to identify it to family Crambidae*, much better than I was able, but still one of 850 possible species in our area. I'm just happy to add the word "Crambid" to my vocabulary.


*Crambidae from type genus Crambus (Fabricius), from Greek meaning "dry, parched." Also, in Greek mythology, the child of Phineus and Cleopatra.
