Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Arctioblepsis is a genus of snout moths. It was described by Felder and Felder, in 1862, and contains the species A. rubida. It is found in south-east Asia, including Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, India and Nepal.The wingspan is 36-44 mm. Adults are on wing from early April to early June and again from early July to mid August in Hong Kong.The larvae have been recorded feeding on Machilus species, including Machilus breviflora and Machilus gamblei. They feed from a slight webbing. Pupation takes place in leaf litter and frass in a rather tough cocoon.Most of these small moths are inconspicuous and of no particular significance to humans. Some are more notable, however. Perhaps the most familiar are waxworms, which are the caterpillar larvae of the Greater (Galleria mellonella) and Lesser (Achroia grisella) wax moths (subfamily Galleriinae). They are natively pests of beehives, but are bred indoors in enormous numbers as food for small reptile and bird pets and similar animals.
