Dysstroma walkerata

Observation date: July 05, 2022
Submitted by: dawittrock2231
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Near a floodlight on my deck. I had one of these before that was assigned to walkerata. My first thought on this one was truncata. But WI Moth Checklist has walkerata in Zone 2, but not truncata. BG assigned the other one to genus and it has not moved since.
