Where did you get that hat?

Carpatolechia proximella
                                                                                                              I was flummoxed when I examined this Carpatolechia proximella while trapping with Tom Woodhall and Sue Wright at Ashwood Nurseries last Wednesday, I had never seen one with a dark red head. On closer inspection the following day it appears that part of the pupal case has remained stuck to the head like a Dutch cap. The eyes are not covered and so I guess it has had no detrimental effect.
