Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: At first all I saw was something fluttering in the ground-cover plants in a courtyard of the building where I live. Then whatever it was flew out of the bushes, across the courtyard, and landed on a brick wall nearby. I could tell it was some type of moth. It was sunny, and in the low 80s. The next afternoon, I saw that the moth was still in the same location, so I took a few more photos. It was sunny and in the high 80s to low 90s. The photo I am going to upload was taken on the first day I saw it, which was June 16, 2018. The white antenna visible on the first day, were not visible on the second day.
