Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Found under an outdoor light after dusk.
Status: Resident
Verified by: curtis.lehman
Verified date: February 02, 2015
Coordinator notes: This identification is tentative. This moth does not match up with Oxydia vesulia but does fit the description of Oxydia cubana. These are the only two Oxydia species proven to be native to Florida. The specimen should really be dissected to verify it's identity.
