Horned Spanworm Moth
Nematocampa resistaria

Observation date: June 07, 2022
Submitted by: robpendergast
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I think possibly M. obfirmaria, but I’m still iffy that it’s even Metarranthis as I can’t seem to find anything exactly similar in the genus.
Status: Resident
Verified by: Ilona L.
Verified date: June 10, 2022
Coordinator notes: Another puzzling moth. I'll wait for an ID from iN. M. obfirmaria seems to be a southern moth. Compare with Elliotte Harold's moth on the MPG page for Nematocampa resistaria - http://mothphotographersgroup.msstate.edu/species.php?hodges=7010
