Aglossa caprealis (Murky meal caterpillar)

Wikipedia Abstract

Aglossa caprealis, the stored grain moth, is a moth species of the family Pyralidae. It is found globally, though its native range is presumably western Eurasia or nearby regions, as in other Aglossa species. The wingspan is 23–27 mm. The moth flies from June to August, depending on the location. The larvae feed on dry plant waste, grain (e.g. maize), hay, straw and decaying manure. Sometimes, they even eat animal carcasses, suet, lard, pork rinds and other fatty materials.
