Submitted by: digginflowers
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: WS is nearly 40mm. It was attracted to the night lights at a beach restaurant and thus sandy saline soil conditions. One source informed us that no other plume is this large. Could this be like so many species where an ID cannot be made without physical examination ?
