Scientists have discovered a new species of moth in northern Europe, which was previously unknown to science.

It is a type of moth from the family Gelechiidae and the scientists have given it the Latin name, Anarsia innoxiella.

According to their new study, Anarsia innoxiella is widespread throughout the UK and Scandinavia, and it is a unique discovery for this part of the world.

Interesting...
I found a moth here in sweden a couple of years ago by accident.
It was sitting on my sons bicycle on our porch..
Ah beutiful I thought and took a photo of it and put it on my facebook.
It took 5 minutes then a friend of mine called me and asked if it was still there.
Yes I said and he asked me to take more photos of it and send to him..

It turned out to be a moth that had only been observed once before in sweden.
I dont remember its name unfortunately..
Of course more people have seen them here but they have not reported it..
