Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: The moth was found in my porch on a window screen. I carefully picked it up and brought it outside of my porch. It started vibrating it's wings and body. I put the moth on a nearby plant and it continued to vibrate. After a few moments it stopped and remained still on the leaves. The weather was a clear 76 F. I have lots of muscadine grape vines growing in my yard.
