Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Attracted overnight to the lights of Headquarters/Visitor Center
Status: Resident
Verified by: stomlins701
Verified date: April 27, 2019
Coordinator notes: I believe this is R. fraternalis on this sighting because of the jagged nature of the forewing basal band. In R. factiosalis, this band is more rounded with some scalloping--not jagged.
