Moth Group of mostly-nocturnal insects in the order Lepidoptera

Moths comprise a group of insects related to butterflies, belonging to the order Lepidoptera. Most lepidopterans are moths, and there are thought to be approximately 160,000 species of moth, many of which have yet to be described. Most species of moth are nocturnal, but there are also crepuscular and diurnal species.

Lecithoceridae family of insects

The Lecithoceridae, or long-horned moths, are a family of small moths described by Simon Le Marchand in 1947. Although lecithocerids are found throughout the world, the great majority are found in the Indomalaya ecozone and the southern part of the Palaearctic ecozone.

Edward Meyrick FRS was an English schoolmaster and amateur entomologist. He was an expert on Microlepidoptera and some consider him one of the founders of modern Microlepidoptera systematics.

The wingspan is about 17 mm. The forewings are ochreous-whitish, suffused with pale brownish except for a triangular blotch on the middle of the costa reaching half across the wing, and an undefined transverse patch before the termen. There is a small costal mark of dark fuscous suffusion on each side of the costal blotch, and a transverse-crescentic dark fuscous mark adjoining its apex posteriorly. A bar of fuscous suffusion is found near the base, with some fuscous irroration in the disc and towards the dorsum before the middle, as well as a cloudy streak of fuscous suffusion along the termen. The hindwings are rather dark fuscous, lighter and ochreous-tinged towards the apex and with a round dark fuscous spot in the middle of the disc, edged anteriorly by a white spot. Some slight irregular whitish suffusion is found towards the termen. [2]

Wingspan distance from one wingtip to the other wingtip of an airplane or an animal (insect, bird, bat)

The wingspan of a bird or an airplane is the distance from one wingtip to the other wingtip. For example, the Boeing 777-200 has a wingspan of 60.93 metres, and a wandering albatross caught in 1965 had a wingspan of 3.63 metres, the official record for a living bird. The term wingspan, more technically extent, is also used for other winged animals such as pterosaurs, bats, insects, etc., and other fixed-wing aircraft such as ornithopters. In humans, the term wingspan also refers to the arm span, which is distance between the length from one end of an individual's arms to the other when raised parallel to the ground at shoulder height at a 90º angle. Former professional basketball player Manute Bol stands at 7 ft 7 in (2.31 m) and owns one of the largest wingspans at 8 ft 6 in (2.59 m).
