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: Nectaring on a flower of black-eyed-susan (Rudbeckia hirta) in an old field used as pasture near the edge of a forest. The second year in a row this moth has been found at this spot. There are upland species of sedge (Carex communis and Carex peckii) growing in the adjacent forest.
