Submitted by: w
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Attracted to an incandescent porch light. Temperature about 60 deg. F. This moth seems to match photos of Eulithis flavibrunneata at MPG and BAMONA. The dark band running parallel to the wing edges seems more in line with the few available photos of E. flavibrunneata rather than E. destinata which I had once thought it might be.

Coordinator notes: from what I read in BG there is no way to separate the two so I put it in here.
