Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I have observed this moth at my homes for 40 years in Genesee Valley, Plumas County, Ca. at 3,700' elevation of the Sierra Nevada Mtns. They unerringly arrive at the 4th of July every year. Only a few show each year but they keep returning. Given the date and coloring I've called it the Independence Day moth
