Double-toothed Prominent
Nerice bidentata

Observation date: July 27, 2017
Submitted by: Exo514
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Found resting up against a brick wall near a potential light source. Its coloring resembled that of a broken twig, but also had some unusual shine to it. A clump of fur protruded from the top of the thorax. I could not identify the species at first until later research led me to believe it was a Double-Toothed Prominent.
