Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America freely available. If everyone who uses this resource makes a donation, we could cover our ongoing costs, develop new features, upgrade the system, and maybe even remove those pesky ads. Please make a one-time or recurring donation to show your support for this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Observation notes: I think the moth had just pupated. It was clinging to a piece of grass and didn't let go or move while I carried the grass to the front porch to get my camera. It expelled a milky substance on the porch and flew off just as I finished taking pictures. Warmest day of the year so far at 89 degrees.
