Twenty-plume Moth Alucita hexadactyla

Many-plumed moths have their wings divided into as much as 6 segments each. In the picture they look very attractive, but they are very small indeed. This is a very small family of moths, containing only some 130 species world wide. The one below is the only representative in both the UK and Northern America and is a very common species indeed. The larvae live of Honeysuckle blossoms mainly. In the Benelux a second species does live, but it is quite rare.
