Deceptive Bomolocha Moth
Hypena deceptalis

Observation date: June 23, 2022

Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Glad to hear that more people are getting interested in moths. A few of my friends that I bird with in SP have started to take notice of moths now that I’ve gotten really into it. It’s quite addicting, checking the sheets has become the highlight of my day. It was a fair bit slower this morning with the cooler temps, still loads of caddisflies to land on my face though!
