Observation notes: The most active of a number of moths seemingly attracted to the lights of a roadside gas station (and the only representative of its species) Was aprox 1.5-2cm long. Observed it flying high and low for 2-3 minutes before it landed on the pavement where it scurried around for another couple minutes before finally pausing long enough to snap a couple quick cell phone photos. Evening was calm with little wind but cool (5C)
