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.

Drepanidae family of insects

The Drepanidae is a family of moths with about 660 species described worldwide. They are generally divided in three subfamilies which share the same type of hearing organ. Thyatirinae, previously often placed in their own family, bear a superficial resemblance to Noctuidae. Many species in the Drepanid family have a distinctively hook-shaped apex to the forewing, leading to their common name of hook-tips.

Francis Walker (entomologist) British entomologist

Francis Walker was an English entomologist. He was one of the most prolific authors in entomology, and stirred controversy during his later life as his publications resulted in a huge number of junior synonyms.

Adults are fawn coloured, tinged with cinereous beneath. The forewings have two transverse denticulated blackish lines. The first antemedial and less distinct than the second, which is postmedial. There is a blackish marginal space with a zigzag fawn-coloured line. There are also three black points on the veins at the end of the discal areolet. The hindwings are pale cinereous. [3]
