Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. If everyone who uses this resource makes a donation, we could cover our ongoing costs, develop new features, upgrade the system, and maybe even remove those pesky ads. Please make a one-time or recurring donation to show your support for this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Observation notes: Flying around my front-door as if looking for a suitable place to land having just been disturbed. I've been trying to get a photograph of this moth at this location for many month, but it always flies up into the foliage of a large tree (that I cannot identify) and lands on the underside of a leaf where it is impossible to see. I have not seen any Oleander Plants (or Devil's Potato or desert Rose plants around here - or any caterpillars) so I don't know where it/they come from. Weather, dull, breezy, dry & mild.
