Moths Found In New Zealand
Commonly known as the Pantry moth (Plodia interpunctella), the Indian Meal Moth, alternatively spelled Indianmeal Moth, is a pyraloid moth of the family Pyralidae. Alternative common names are North American High-flyer and Pantry Moth; less specifically, it may be referred to as "flour moth". The Almond Moth (Cadra cautella) is commonly confused with the Indianmeal Moth. Its larvae (caterpillars) are commonly known as "waxworms" like those of its relatives, though they are not the particular waxworms often bred as animal food. They are a common grain-feeding pest found around the world, feeding on cereals and similar products.
