Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Found near a light. I know this species has only been recorded in the south, mostly in Florida, but the pinned specimens on BOLDS look exactly the same, maculation, basal patch and size all matching the images and description (respectively) given. Also, this moth is quite common around my house in Arlington, I found it as early as June 5 this year, and this one was the last one I found before I went to college.
