Walker's Epinotia Moth
Epinotia transmissana

Observation date: August 04, 2021
Submitted by: dawittrock2231
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Near a floodlight on my deck. Not sure about this one, transmissana seems to have some color variation. Sorry for the confusion on the other moth, I think I finally figured out why I was confused. You might get moths soon down your way, but I think they are still a few weeks away her, although I keep my eyes open.

Coordinator notes: Epinotia transmissana looks correct to me, too. If a different ID is given on BG, I'll change this.
