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: These pictures were taken with a very cheap phone. My apologies. I believe it was dying as it was having much difficulty keeping upright.I had never seen one before.

Coordinator notes: Photos are blurry but the FW pattern and HW coloration are a good match with A. virgo. Note - Apantesis virgo (Linnaeus, 1758) was formerly in the genus Grammia, Systematic Entomology: 41(4): 844-853. See MPG: http://mothphotographersgroup.msstate.edu/species.php?hodges=8197 JRains
