Observation date: August 27, 2018
Submitted by: sue from the south
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I saw this moth sitting on my car and it appears that somehow a piece of a twig became part of the moth; I am assuming while it was transforming. I have attached a few pictures. I am interested to know if this is a somewhat common thing or is this moth just an unusual moth .
