Nemapogon clematella

The larvae of Nemapogon clematella feed in fungus on a variety of trees and shrubs and can be detected by frass exuded from the fungus. This seems to be particularly easy to find on the small black fungus that occurs commonly on dead Hazel stems in overstood coppice. The moth can be bred easily.
