Coordinator notes: Thank you for the record, EdmMom11. I have a favor to ask - can you resubmit this, since there are two moths in the picture, and we can only assign the identification and record to one species per submission. We'd like to get the data for both species. I submitted this for the tiger moth, since it is the less common of the two.
