Observation date: May 19, 2023
Submitted by: Staryleo
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Location: Morrison, Tennessee I found this little moth on my porch with tattered lower wings. It shook its wings but didn’t make an attempt to take off. Had some rough storms yesterday that may have been responsible for the wing damage. I’ve never seen one in this area before and was a wonderful find!
