Date notes: Humid, cooler day. Overcast.
Submitted by: JTSantangelo
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Moth was seen before noon then again after 8:30pm. I'm hoping I'm wrong about the ID. It hung out on my garage door. I'm concerned because I have a lot of boxwoods along the front of my house.
