The Blotched Monopis Moth (Monopis meliorella) is a moth of the Tineidae family. It has been recorded from Australia (including Norfolk Island), New Zealand and Hawaii. The larvae probably feed on animal fibre or refuse of plant origin.A moth is an insect closely related to the butterfly, both being of the order Lepidoptera. Moths form the majority of this order; there are thought to be 150,000 to 250,000 different species of moth (about ten times the number of species of butterfly), with thousands of species yet to be described.
