Atteva aurea

Observation date: August 01, 2023
Submitted by: Alison Davies
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Feeding from a coneflower. [At the time, I snapped this photo because this was such an unusual and interesting looking bug, which I thought was a beetle. I had no idea that it was a moth until tonight when I was researching butterflies and came across an ID photo. What a nice surprise!]
