Lepidoptera Crambus Tristellus Moth

The same family contains the species Tristellus, which, unlike the preceding insect, is abundant everywhere.

Tristellus Moths Fig. 221.-Tristellus.

Its fore wings are generally yellowish brown, but exceedingly variable. A pale streak runs from the base to just beyond the middle of the wing, and is then forked. Near the hind margin is a very indistinct brown wavy line. The hind wings are dull smoke colour with a light fringe. As with the other moths of the family, its labial palpi are very long.

The moth flies from July to September.
