Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. If everyone who uses this resource makes a donation, we could cover our ongoing costs, develop new features, upgrade the system, and maybe even remove those pesky ads. Please make a one-time or recurring donation to show your support for this valuable source of information. Thank you!

Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Weather was warm--mid to upper sixties. The moth was attracted to our porch light in our backyard and attached itself to my black and white checkered shirt. When I picked it up, it seemed relatively content to sit on my hand. At some point it began beating its wings without taking off. This lasted about 30 seconds before it eventually flew off towards our porch light again.
