Bilobed Looper Moth
Megalographa biloba

Observation date: June 24, 2018
Submitted by: Jurassic_Queer
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I found a cocoon on my balcony catnip plant, thinly wrapped in silk with a green caterpillar partially transformed into a chrysalis. I moved the leaf into my indoor greenhouse and this morning found it hatched with a moth resting on my fennel sprouts. The moth so far hasn't moved and I transferred the pot it was resting on to the balcony in full sun for it to dry out the rest of the way.
