Elegant Grass-veneer Moth

Microcrambus elegans

Description:

Small Crambid Snout Moth. Pale with dark markings that resemble a "scowling" face.

Habitat:

Suburban garden (on the ornamental Willow tree).

Notes:

Sorry for the poor quality of these photos. This moth stayed just long enough for three shots and the third was terribly out of focus and not usable. I figured since it was identifiable that I would submit it.
