Submitted by: naj.pilla
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: The larger size and faint markings led me to H. fraxinalis vs. H. aquilonalis; however, I will defer to the experts. Hopefully the photo is good enough to ID. It stayed on the underside of the leaf for a short time (enough to snap a photo). Handfield and Handfield. 2021.
