Yellow-headed Looper
Lambdina pellucidaria

Observation date: June 12, 2017
Submitted by: tedjerome
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: For the first time in my experience here in the warm-season in over forty years, hundreds and hundreds of this moth are flying up into the air from the ground or low bushes in this predominantly hemlock forested area as I walk by them. They come up in clouds and bump into my face as I go by! Temp in mid- to high-eighties.
