Dusky Herpetogramma
Herpetogramma phaeopteralis

Observation date: December 23, 2017
Submitted by: Bill Uttenweiler
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Landed in the grass and was perfectly camouflaged. I pointed the camera, focused on the grass, and hoped the moth was still there. It was. An acquaintance suggested the locally more common Dusky Herpetogramma but the color seems more appropriate for fluctuosalis.
