What does the Camptoloma look like?

The Camptoloma is a moth of yellow hue
With dark stripes and spots on its wings so true
It flies in the night, seeking the light
And feeds on the leaves of the oak and the spurge

It lives in the East, where the sun rises first
In China, Japan, Korea and Russia
It is not very big, but it has a charm
That makes it unique among its kin

But the Camptoloma is not alone
It has a mate that shares its throne
They dance in the air, with grace and flair
And lay their eggs on their chosen plant

The Camptoloma is a beauty rare
A creature of nature that we should care
It may be a pest, but it does its best
To survive in a world that is not always fair
