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!
Observation notes: Measured 9mm TL. ID confirmed by Phycitine expert and referee of those pages on MPG, Brian Scholtens who comments that this species "is a bit variable, but the flat gray with slightly lighter markings, particularly across the middle the wing is distinctive." I refer to these markings as peppery. Now I have an adult to go with the caterpillar of this species that I photographed 4 years ago. Also posted on BugGuide: http://bugguide.net/node/view/1265091
