Physical characteristics indicated the moths to be members of the family Pyralidae, however, genus or species were not able to be determined by agriculture specialists and specimens were submitted to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) for further identification.
A USDA Smithsonian Institution entomologist later confirmed with CBP this was the first encounter of this species of moth since it was first described in 1912.


What f*cking species is it, MSN? Is it a national security secret or something?

It's an illegal moth, per regulation they were destroyed.
