Hologram Moth
Diachrysia balluca

Observation date: July 26, 2017
Submitted by: ceider
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: This moth flew into my house one night, and I was unable to coax it outside or capture it. A couple of days later I found it looking pretty exhausted on my bed and brought it outside to my garden where I was able to observe it in different lighting and see its excellent change in color before it flew off.
