Observation date: June 27, 2019
Submitted by: RobertWeeden
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: 20 mm WS; 9 mm FWL Found in my car (aspen woods) Id based on the distinct shape of the alternating light and dark bands and that pyrusana is known to be a western species at least as far north as British Columbia. Size (this moth cooperated nicely when I measured him with my ruler) is right for pyrusana as well.
