MANY PLUMED MOTH (Alucita hexadactyla) ©JavaBurst
The Alucitidae or many-plumed moths are a family of moths with unusually modified wings. This is a small family, with about 130 worldwide species having been described to date mostly from temperate and warm regions (not tropical); sometimes the roughly 20 Tineodidae species are merged herein, making the Alucitoidea superfamily monotypic.
Both fore- and hind-wings consist of about six rigid spines, from which radiate flexible bristles creating a structure similar to a bird’s feather. Both in Great Britain and North America only one species is found - Alucita hexadactyla. This smallish moth can often be found fluttering in the evening twilight or resting with its ‘wings’ outstretched. Its larvae feed on honeysuckle (Lonicera).
