Submitted by: DDADCOOCDADD
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: It was a very low-wind and warm day, with rain coming in the following days, and a moon phase was early waxing crescent. It was one of many moths found in the same spot under super-LED lights at a gas station that is in a transitional area between sandy Bog meadows and piney residential area. The moth occasionally "buzzed" but was mostly stunned still.
