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.
