Observation date: June 27, 2019
Submitted by: RobertWeeden
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Series of white triangles on the trailing edge of the FW seems unique to the Crambus moths on Moth Photographers Group. Wing pattern is a very good match to the specimen pictured on BOLD. Alienellus is listed in the Checklist of Alaskan Moths as being found in the Interior of Alaska. I did not get a measurement but it is fairly small.
