  Sighting 619010

Observation date: August 06, 2011
Submitted by: Paul Dennehy
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Collected at MV lights along recently burned riparian habitat running through the desert. I'm not very familiar with western Drasteria, but the CDFA specimen of D. stretchii at Moth Photographers Group is a very close match.
Status: Resident

Coordinator notes: The time of year also matches. However, yours has a lighter line than most. The shape of the darker line seems to be diagnostic, so I agree. Kelly
