Pink and white larvae with brown head. "Adult: bicolored forewing with the basal half light gray or whitish, and the distal half reddish-brown, coppery, or dark gray hindwing white or pale gray" The adult can be seen at my other spotting: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/383...
On measuring cup in Basmati rice. "native to South America; now cosmopolitan. Larvae are found in stored food products; adults are found indoors wherever food products are stored"
"infests a wide variety of stored food products such as flour, oatmeal, dried fruits, seeds, nuts, powdered milk, biscuits, chocolate, and bird seed. Larvae spin silken threads as they crawl through stored products, creating a matted layer of product, frass, and pupal cases"
