10 cases of lachryphagous moths settling at human eyes were witnessed. The behaviour of 3 Chaeopsetis ludovicae (Thyatiridae), one Rhagastis olivacea (Sphingidae) and one Togarishachia albistriga (Notodontidae) attacking the author is detailed. C. ludovicae was particularly obnoxious due to clawing of the eyelid's conjunctiva. R. olivacea drank lachrymation while hovering, the tip of the 4-cm long proboscis causing little discomfort.I am amazed that moths that live on human tears feature in so little emo poetry and so few Cure lyrics. Perhaps it is something to do with the difficulty of finding a rhyme for "Notodontidae".
There are also reports of bees feeding on tears but that is not nearly so poetic.
Disappointingly, Dr Bänziger does not describe which human secretions feed the larval stage of the moth.
UPDATE: Bonus photograph of hot moth-on-eyeball action.
If mikey in comments wants photographs of toe-sucking wombats, he'll have to provide his own.
