Greater Grapevine Looper Moth
Eulithis gracilineata

Observation date: September 11, 2012
Submitted by: ellamoo
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: What caught my attention was the fact that it's body was curved back over itself, with the end almost touching the head. I wondered at first if there was something wrong with it, but it subsequently flew and I was able to take the second photo of it on the grass. It was quite small - less than an inch.
