Submitted by: Margarita
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: We can see this moth everyday in BCS they are all around Todos Santos to Cabo and Miraflores The Mexican government doesn't identify the specie yet and the worst part is that part of the community is worry because of the amount of moths. At this moment you can find the caterpillars everywhere this moth can spawn a bunch of eggs in a few hours. I can send more pictures if you want! Thanks :)
