scientific name    Clemensia albata    

common name     Little White Lichen Moth

Primarily a species of moist, mixed wood boreal forest. Rare in the aspen parkland.

Mid July to early August.

Easily missed because of its small size. However, wing shape and pattern can be used to distinguish it from micro-moths. Most similar in size and overall shape to the leaf rollers (Tortricidae), but leaf rollers generally have a broader, more blunt appearance to the forewing, and banded (not speckled) forewing patterns, like in C. albata.
