Submitted by: CelestiHel

Observation notes: Found on the door of a small warehouse building near the interstate, mixed evergreens and hardwoods and field brush around. Tried to get the hindwings open but then it fell through the grate. I understand it may not be possible to narrow further without the hindwings.
