Federal customs officers were sifting through luggage at Detroit Metropolitan Airport last fall when they stumbled upon seed pods with little holes in them in one passenger’s bag. Inside, they found the larvae and pupae of an unidentified insect.

Now, staff at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection have determined that the larvae and pupae belonged to a moth species that hasn’t been seen for more than 100 years.

That's super cool! And I usually respect privacy but stuff like this is good because that could have been an invasive species or something dangerous, even. Good catch. Also pretty gross, dude was gonna make tea with those seeds.
