|Cosmopterigidae ~ Cosmet Moths|
I have only found one species in this family and can only identify it to the genus Cosmopterix. |
The only place I have found Cosmopterix is in the large fiberglass enclosed structure known as the Greenhouse at Hornsby Bend Wastewater Treatment Plant. These small moths are found on the low vegetation right next to the ponds. Their larvae are leaf-miners and so I've never encountered them. Adults appear to be present throughout the warm months, but it is easy to not even notice them due to their minute size.
