Lepidoptera Family Liparida Moths

Passing over the two small species which are the only British representatives of the family Cochliopodida, we come to the interesting Liparida, the remarkable feature of which is that most of the caterpillars are adorned with brush-like tufts of hair, and even the chrysalides are hairy.

The perfect insects are not brilliantly coloured, but generally display very pale tints; and the antenna of the males are pectinated or feathered.
