Grape Leaffolder Moth

Desmia sp. (most likely Desmia funeralis, possibly Desmia maculalis)


The two Desmia species, Desmia funeralis and Desmia maculalis are so similar, the best way to identify them is through DNA testing. Some people suggest D. funeralis has a completely black head, and D. maculalis has a white dot on the head, but many have denoted this explanation as inconsistent.
