Cryptoblabes gnidiella (Milliere) - (honeydew moth)

This polyphagous moth is found in the Mediterranean region and various other parts of the world. It breeds in fruits like pomegranate, citrus or grapes. Larvae can spread with the fruit trade which probably explains its wide distribution. The moth has a wingspan of around 15 mm. The forewings are brownish with lighter areas. The larvae are yellowish to reddish brown or darker brown with longitudinal stripes.
