  Sighting 1069608

Observation date: October 16, 2015
Submitted by: treichard
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: 22 mm total length measured by ruler. Looks a lot like BAMONA #1069334 at the same location 3 nights ago, which was determined to be Noctua pronuba. But both moths seem small for that species, and neither has yellow hindwings. Yet I'm far from confident that it might be my best guess, Abagrotis cupida.
