Little White Lichen Moth
Clemensia albata

Observation date: July 24, 2019
Submitted by: dawittrock2231
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Near a floodlight on my deck. Seems too light to be umbrata. Submission #1282921 was identified as 3495 Dotted Ecdytolopha Moth (Gymnandrosoma punctidiscanum) on BG. Submission #1283049 is likely to be tessellaris, given that my Audubon Field Guide of North American Trees shows that Sycamores are lonly presnt in very SE Wisconsin, but I submitted to BG to see if they agree with that assessment.
