Black Penestola Moth
Penestola bufalis

Observation date: June 11, 2021
Submitted by: Bill Uttenweiler
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: On the stucco near the entrance to our home; hanging out in the shade on a bright morning. Since the specimen is very dark, I've attached multiple images from two different cameras. The final image is the same as the first, except with color saturation reduced to hopefully help in identification.
