Common NameLittle White Lichen Moth SeasonalityMid July to early August. IdentificationEasily missed because of its small size. However, wing shape and pattern can be used to distinguish it from micro-moths. Most similar in size and overall shape to the leaf rollers (Tortricidae), but leaf rollers generally have a broader, more blunt appearance to the forewing, and banded (not speckled) forewing patterns, like in C. albata.
