Submitted by: Slugbait
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Seen briefly inside quarry main shop. It was flying quickly in no apparent pattern from the ceiling to floor and back over and over. On a couple of occasions it fluttered along the floor and even alit for a couple seconds, once right at my feet allowing me to get a couple quick cell phone pics. A couple minutes after first seeing it a nearby hanger door was opened and the moth flew out into the darkness (other doors were already wide open)
