Commonly found all over the UK, the Ypsolopha Dentella is commonly known as the Honeysuckle Moth. It’s dark brown and dark grey distinctive and attractive camouflage on its body exterior is noticeable in lightly lit rooms, even under fluorescent lights. The moth is attracted to bright lights and lives close to a Bee Hive, because it enjoys honey as it’s nourishment.

The Bee Hive has honey trickling down the inside and outside. That’s why if you’re non-allergic to Honeysuckle Moths you’ll experience temporary blindness.
