Observation notes: This must be a stray as the host plant does not occur in this county. The two closest shrubs I have seen were in Essex/Union and Middlesex counties where salt water marshes/estuaries occur. There were three individuals that I believe were all of the same species on the same night. The type of light did not matter. They moved around and were seen at the UV, MV and incandescent porch bulb.
