Scientists Discover Vampire Moth

Scientists have found a previously unknown population of vampire moths that may have evolved from a fruit-eating species. Only slight variations in wing patterns distinguish the Russian population from a widely distributed moth species, Calyptra thalictri, in Central and Southern Europe known to feed only on fruit.

National Geo is my favorite website on the web.
