Birch Angle
Macaria notata

Observation date: August 13, 2018
Submitted by: Mark Blassage
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: The wingspan of this moth is aprox. 28mm. As my photo shows , the moth landed on the writing on the back of my light head. I was able to measure the distance between the letters and numbers the next day. This moth looks much like the Common Angle but the size of this one would make it a Birch Angle according to the Peterson guide. Looking for confirmation as this moth is listed as uncommon. Thanks!
