Coordinator notes: This is a day-flying moth not a butterfly. It is in the moth family Noctuidae and in the genus Drasteria but I am unable to confidently identify to species. There are many moths in this genus and many look nearly alike without closer examination. Perhaps someone who knows a lot about these will be able to provide a definite ID to species for you later on. Mike
