Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Archiephestia is a genus of snout moths. It was described by Amsel, in 1955, and contains the species A. adpiscinella. It was described from North Africa, but is also known from Spain.Most of these small moths are inconspicuous and of no particular significance to humans. Some are more notable, however. Perhaps the most familiar are waxworms, which are the caterpillar larvae of the Greater (Galleria mellonella) and Lesser (Achroia grisella) wax moths (subfamily Galleriinae). They are natively pests of beehives, but are bred indoors in enormous numbers as food for small reptile and bird pets and similar animals.show more
