Family Depressariidae Hodges # 0862
Family Depressariidae Caterpillar food: Umbelliferae except Conium (Journal of the Lepidopterists’ Society)
I’m fairly sure this is the right ID for this moth. I consulted Bugguide, MPG, and Seabrooke Leckie’s blog. It has no common name, so I’m using ‘Clemens’ Agonopterix’ as an adaptation of the latin name – following Seabrooke’s example.
6/17/2020 This caterpillar dropped from a Golden Alexanders leaf (Zizia aurea) and hung by a silk thread.
6/17/2020 I put it into a jar with some Golden Alexanders leaves and it made this silk nest along the midrib of a leaf.
7/9/2020 Adult emerged and was released
