Subterranean Dart Moth
Feltia subterranea

Observation date: October 17, 2018
Submitted by: Lemon_and_Licorice
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: They came out from under some leaf litter (fruitless mulberry leaves) when the lawn was being watered and one flew onto the stucco wall of the house and another into some decorative river rocks. I believe they might be different genders- if not, it seemed so when looking at them because I thought one was darker.
