  Sighting 1291646

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. 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. Sighting Record 1291642 contains more images of the species. Out of all individuals sighted, these two were the only ones of this species observed so closely together. They were sitting still on the wall just next to an outdoor light.
