This looks quite similar to the moth on my previous post, but there are differences. Eudonia mercurella is slightly smaller with a forewing length of 7 to 9mm (0.3 to 0.4in), can be more variable, but can usually be identified by its white cross-lines and markings. 36 more words

On 'Meece'

Back home in Newfoundland the moose are now so numerous there’s some consideration of giving them the vote.
