Observation date: May 06, 2021
Submitted by: wilderneyes
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: The weather has recently been too cold at night for mpths to want to gather, but it was waem enough this night for a number of moths to sit under the outside lamps. The individual has a reddish-brown coloration with a golden brown "eye" marking on either forewing. The terminal area of the wings forms a horizontal silhouette when the wings are shut. The collar is fuzzy and has a slight ridge at the back, tapering sharply towards the head in a flat shape as opposed to a rounded one. The legs are segmented with white bands, and the antennae, though thin in shape, are visibly segmented. From the head to the base of the wings, not including antennae, it is approximately one inch in length.
