Many-lined Wainscot
Leucania multilinea

Observation date: July 18, 2022
Submitted by: dawittrock2231
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Near a floodlight on my deck. I think the markings on the collar make this either multilinea or lapidaria. Multilinea appears more common, although the WI Moth Checklist indicates both are present statewide. I will submit to BG, but don't expect an answer soon.
