Submitted by: w
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Attracted to incandescent porch light.
Status: Unknown
Verified by: Tom Middagh
Verified date: February 18, 2019
Coordinator notes: After further review there are four species that look similar. D. festuca and D. flavocostella have a sharp point to the white area so those were ruled out. D. aleatrix has a grey forewing costal margin. The photo of this moth seems to lack the grey edge.
