I just found this lil guy on a dead basil leaf blowing in the wind. Wondering if its a keeper or a pest?
Friend or Foe?
It looks very interesting, I hope someone knows what it is.
I think it may be a Plutella xylostella also known as diamondback moth or pest. Will place it in a lit grow out tank and see what becomes should it be the diamond it'll get fed to one of my carnivorous plants. If its a keeper then Ill release it but I am thinking its a pest.
My suspicions were correct in that it is a pest Plutella xylostella and after this pic was fed to my Nepenthes pitcher.
LOL Michael! Great job raising it just to see if you were correct, tho.
