Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. If everyone who uses this resource makes a donation, we could cover our ongoing costs, develop new features, upgrade the system, and maybe even remove those pesky ads. Please make a one-time or recurring donation to show your support for this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Observation notes: Found this moth snoozing on my beach towel which was hanging outside in the shade, probably taking a respite from the heat (it was 88 degrees in the shade at nearly 6:00 in the evening). Looking at it head-on up close, it reminds me of a little bat with an upturned snout.
