False Wainscot
Leucania pseudargyria

Observation date: July 18, 2022
Submitted by: dawittrock2231
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Near a floodlight on my deck. Judging by the Wisconsin Butterfly and Moth Enthusiast Facebook page, it does seem like there are more people posting moth photos. I don't know how that translates to submissions that you see, but I know a couple of the people there are posting things to BAMONA. I think that is a good thing.
Status: Resident
Verified by: Ilona L.
Verified date: July 19, 2022
Coordinator notes: Could be either but seems to match better with Leucania pseudargyria examples. There are a few new people posting on BAMONA in the past several weeks but so far with just one or several photos.
