Baltimore Bomolocha Moth
Hypena baltimoralis

Observation date: May 24, 2022
Submitted by: robpendergast
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Update on the Hydriomena. Yesterday, I collected a single individual that I’m going to send to the UW insect diagnostic lab. I plan on submitting that individual to species when/if I can get in ID on it so you can clear the other hydriomena records I submitted from your queue. After some sleuthing on the moth forums on Facebook, the general consensus was dissection is really the only reliable way to ID the genus to species level.
