Our 2023 fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. Your support is vital to the project. Please make a recurring or one-time donation to sustain this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Observation notes: Found on sidewalk outside of market. Looked like it was having difficulty and was not in the best shape. Part or all of one of its antennae was missing. i brought it to an area across the street that was vegetated and had several trees, shrubs and forbs. I pulled some cobweb-looking material off of it, and it "shivered" while i was doing this. Then, it fluttered/flew away, fairly strongly. Weather was unusually warm and humid. Location is on US Highway 101, and many semi-trucks and tourists stop here. Wondering if it was caught on the front of someone's vehicle and fell off.
