Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. If everyone who uses this resource makes a donation, we could cover our ongoing costs, develop new features, upgrade the system, and maybe even remove those pesky ads. Please make a one-time or recurring donation to show your support for this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Date notes: Hot, humid, had been storming on and off for days. At the time the sun was peeking through, and a storm came through about 30 minutes after I spotted this guy.

Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Was hiding among the bark of some oak and pine trees as I walked through the woods behind my work. I spotted him and he kept flying from tree to tree trying to hide. I managed to get some mediocre photos of him before he took off into the treetops. As he was flying I noticed the underwing was very white, and he has 4 distinct white spots along his middle back. I couldn't ID him from any of my guides but he was magnificent.
