 Opogona stereodyta


Opogona stereodyta HIEROXESTINAE TINEIDAE

I was not able to find anything on the biology of this moth.
They are found all over Australia.

Family:- TINEIDAE
Sub Family:- HIEROXESTINAE
Genus:- Opogona
Species:- stereodyta





*************************************************************************************

TINEIDAE species Poss Phereoeca praecox

This identification is a bit on the doubtful side. Although the moth has been collected in Australia,
and the visual identification fits the samples on the internet very well, I am always suspicious of
finding a moth that is rarely found in Australia, even though it is common in other parts of the world.

It is a case moth and appears to be another species that prefer dead animal material.




Family:- TINEIDAE
Sub Family:-
Genus:-  Phereoeca (Possibly)
Species:- praecox (Possibly)
