Banded Sunflower Moth
Cochylis hospes

Observation date: October 24, 2016
Submitted by: Betsy Higgins
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I reared this moth from a caterpillar I found in flowers from my CSA. I'm pretty sure the cat came from a sunflower but I can't 100% confirm that. It pupated in September and was in my house and eclosed in October, so the dates are not natural flight dates.
