Body length 3.5 and 4 mm.
Wingspan 10 – 15 mm.
The upper side of the forewings is pale brown with three darker spots on the wings. Both pairs of wings have fringed margins. The larva has the habit of carrying a silken tube and often attached to it are particles of wool, fibres, etc from the immediate habitat. The case is open at both ends and the larva is rarely found outside it.
Open wing span – approx. 16 mm
The forewing has a broad grey band across the bronze brown wings. In common with other moth species, wing scales are readily lost and wing pattern is therefore an unreliable characteristic for identification.
Body length 6 – 8 mm.
Wingspan 9 – 16 mm.
The upper side of the forewings is buff, nearly golden, in colour. Both pairs of wings have fringed margins. Adults are rarely seen in flight, mostly only the males, and the females after they have deposited their eggs. The larva is yellowish white in colour with a brown head and measures around 10 mm in length when fully mature.
