Amphion floridensis

Observation date: June 10, 2020
Submitted by: Katie Greger
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Was sitting on a leaf of an artichoke in the sunny greenhouse. Didn't move when I passed by and I passed by it a couple times before I noticed it. Thought it was a leaf at first. Didn't see it fly away. The day was sunny and warm around 70 degrees Fahrenheit, maybe a little warmer in the greenhouse and a bit windy.
