Primrose Moth
Schinia florida

Observation date: August 09, 2016
Submitted by: Sparkle
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: My daughter was helping me in my garden and we have alot of these wild yellow flowers growing around the garden and our property. She spotted the moth and I had to open the flower some more to get the picture. She found another moth exactly like this one in another flower. I tried to google it but found none that looked like this. Both moths were inside flowers and are both white and pink.
