Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. 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 have been observing wildlife in Idaho for nearly 50 years. I don't remember ever having seen one of these moths before. It was observed sitting on a raspberry bush in Bonner County Idaho. It would fly out in small circles then return to sit on the raspberry. I observed it doing this several times. Weather: mid-70s, partly cloudy, slight breeze.
