The Brother Moth
Raphia frater

Observation date: July 27, 2018
Submitted by: A_baldini
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Time: 10:25 p.m. Habitat: Front porch, with the closest nearby vegetation being a honeysuckle vine. Notes: I came across this surprisingly intricate moth sitting completely still on the window screen next to my front porchlight. Unfortunately, my National Moth Week event had just wrapped up, so I can't select it as a partner project for this sighting. I have two photos, each with a different exposure.
