Carpenterworm Moth
Prionoxystus robiniae

Observation date: May 03, 2019
Submitted by: BunnyRABIT02
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: The weather was clear, I found her (along with about 15 other different moths) next to the garage light which I had left on last night accidently. I am positive it's a female, from her swollen body, struggle to fly, and the fact that she spewed her mate attracting what-cha-ma-call-it all over the container.
