Garden Grass Veneer Moth

Garden Grass Veneer MothChrysoteuchia culmella is a species of moth of the family Crambidae. It is common throughout the UK and Southern Africa,and found in grassland and meadows.
Chrysoteuchia culmella moths have a wingspan ranging between 18 to 24 mm.
The larvae of Veneer Moths feed on the roots of various grasses, in some cases causing enough damage to be considered a pest. This particular one was found in my back gardern, and taken with a MPE65 Canon Lens. The light was terrible there though.
