Observation date: September 26, 2017
Submitted by: Varn
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Moth is feeding on yellow sand-verbena (Abronia latifolia). I'm not at all confident about my ID, it's more of a guess and hope. I've been on some field trips looking for it after dark without success. Seems unlikely to find it out in sunlight. Saw 3 to 5 individuals that looked the same, this is the best photo.
Status: Resident
