Common Name: Slug caterpillar moths
Description: Small to medium-sized moths with a stout body and a dense covering of hairs and scales. Front wings, held tent-like over the body, are usually dark brown and marked with an irregular spot of contrasting color. Antennae of male are bipectinate. Larvae are fleshy and slug-like with stinging hairs. They move by gliding on sucker-like prolegs.
