Nycteola frigidana


The caterpillars are noted for their sparse, long white hairs that are so fine that they are difficult to see unless looked for closely in good light or with a magnifier. They feed on willow. The cocoon is similar to that of N. cinereana. The genus Nycteola is in the subfamily Sarrothripinae.
