Small Dingy Tubic
The Small Dingy Tubic, also called by its scientific name of Borkhausenia fuscescens, looks a little like a small version of the Brown House moth and, like that, is one of Nature's recyclers. The larva is often in a silk tube, hence the name "tubic," and feeds on dead vegetation and bird debris.
