Velvetbean Caterpillar Moth
Anticarsia gemmatalis

Observation date: October 14, 2020
Submitted by: Hypno
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Typical fluttering associated with a moth to a light, which is where I first noticed it. It's been low 40°F here at night and high 60°F during the day. Found in Tennessee. I don't believe this moth to be a rarity here but it seemed to be slightly different compared to other, "simple", colored moths that I have noticed.
