  Sighting 1291642

Observation date: May 15, 2021
Submitted by: wilderneyes
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: The night was mild and dozens of moths from different species were gathered near the outdoor lights. Most were sitting still on the wall, ground, or on other surfaces. This species, which I believe to be the species Egira dolosa and was observed in the area a few days earlier, was the most prevalent among them. More moths were present than are pictured here, but each photograph is of a different individual. They appear to all to be of the same species.
