Platypus skull moth

I had a new moth for the garden this week, the rather pretty Ethmia quadrillella.

The caterpillars live in a silken web and feed on the foliage of comfrey and lungwort. Have not seen either of these nearby so must keep a better look out.

I don't think this has an English name, but if it did it would be the Platypus Skull Moth. Or at least that's what I see when I see it from above!
