Box Tree Moth

Box Tree Moth

A Box Tree Moth (Glyphodes perspectalis) that somehow made its way into my bathtub (no water in it, though), Sep.9. This animal is native to eastern Asia and was first recorded from Germany some six years ago. Box Tree caterpillars have apparently been wreaking havoc across Europe since. They can completely defoliate box plants.
