Submitted by: Nick Lorenz
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Found in a greenhouse with hemp. Since we have had the last week or so of high temperatures and dry weather the moths have been found in very high numbers. No sign of other life stages of that moth have been found. They do not appear to be a plant pest, but simply a green house "nuisance"
