  Sighting 1285714

Observation date: August 01, 2020
Submitted by: dawittrock2231
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Near a floodlight on my deck. This would be late in the season for this moth, which would explain why it is so worn. There seem to be faint traces of the spots and median line. I also looked at Agnorisma badinodis, but seems too early. I'm told submission #1285696 is a caddisfly, not the first time I've made that mistake, it is the first time that I've seen a caddisfly in the daytime.
