Lepidoptera Family Caberida Moths

Six species, all of rather small size, constitute the British portion of the above family. Their wings are mostly white or pale grey, with light markings, and without angles. The moths are to be caught with the net at dusk, or they may be seen on fences and tree trunks during the day, with their wings fully extended and applied closely to the surface on which they rest.

The larva, which have no humps, feed on trees, and change to the chrysalis state in light silken cocoons.
