Pyralidae, Galleriinae - Galleria mellonella (Wax Moth)

Small moth reared from honeycomb in Singapore

I collected an empty comb of a dwarf honeybee Apis andreniformis in Singapore, following which a small, pale caterpillar emerged from the comb and pupated, shortly after which this small moth (less than 1cm) emerged. Any ideas on its identity will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

looks like Galleria mellonella, though with half the length of the wings missing!

Pyralidae, Galleriinae.

The species is a known pest of bee hives, and can occasionally cause significant damage.

cheers,

Roger.

感謝Dr.Kendrick 的 ID
八鄉發現,這隻比較完整,留紀錄。
原來其幼蟲是吃蜂巢的,所以叫Greater Wax Moth
