Submitted by: belinda4805
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I saw this moth on a little table on my front porch in the evening. It didn't move when I got near it; in fact, it stayed put while I ran in to get my camera. The ridges across the wings were very striking. The color is not true in these pictures--it was actually a light green color.
