Consonant, consonant, consonant, another consonant...

No not a tricky letter choice on Countdown but the start of the name of one of my favourite micros that came to the garden trap last night.

There aren't many words, let alone moths, that have to wait until the fifth letter of their name to use a vowel but Phtheochroa rugosana is one such example.  Hard to spell, never mind pronounce, but a stunning moth and one I look forward to each year.  This one was hiding under the trap this morning.
