Lepidoptera is a large order of insects that includes moths and butterflies. This moth could be from the Lasiocampidae family of moths are also known as snout moths, eggars or lappet moths. The common name ‘snout moths’ comes from their unique protruding mouth parts of some species that resemble a large nose.
Daar is meer as sewe keer soveel motte as skoenlappers in die orde Lepidoptera. Die woord Lepidoptera is afgelei van twee Griekse woorde, lepis (’n skub) en pteron (’n vlerk). Dit is dikwels moeilik om ’n skoenlapper van ’n mot te onderskei.
