Tropical warehouse moth or almond moth - Cadra cautella (syn. Ephestia cautella)

Top
When freshly emerged, the Cadra cautella moth's wings are gray with vague darker markings. The caterpillar has a small black spot at the base of each hair. Warehouse moths are a major pest of flourmills, food processing plants and dried fruits. Silk webbing produced by the caterpillars can block machinery. For an image of the caterpillar see BE1020.
