Geranium Plume Moth
Amblyptilia pica

Observation date: September 18, 2012
Submitted by: iKixiePixie
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I first saw this one about a week ago in my kitchen, I actually thought it was a crack in my ceiling til it moved across the room a few days later. I was baffled, I've never seen one of these before. It hardly ever moved til today I saw it fly and it's moving around the kitchen more now. It's been sunny for the most part.
