Coordinator notes: I think you're right on this one. Might want to post it on BG since there are no reports of this moth in our area. Hint-you should adjust the flash control on your camera to avoid the yellow color. The flash control can usually be set for different kinds of lighting such as sunlight, flash, incandescent lighting, etc.
