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: Top with view and underside of wing. This moth chases the humming birds, keeps up with them, then returns to almost the same place over and over again. I am amazed at how fast it can fly. The plant is a tropical banana palm. It was sunny around 1030 A.M. I have noticed them for most of the summer June through September.
