Longhorn Moth

Another species of longhorn moth: Adela fibulella = Cauchas fibulella (Lepidoptera: Adelidae), characterized by the light patches in the middle of the forewings.  The larvae feed on germander speedwell (Veronica chamaedrys), some flowers of which happened to be in the background of the above photo before I cropped it.

Photo taken in Whiteknights Park, Reading University grounds, Reading, UK, on 2010-06-02.
