Submitted by: Stuart Marcus
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Trinity River Refuge HQ building under white light.
Status: Resident
Verified by: stomlins701
Verified date: March 22, 2013
Coordinator notes: This is a difficult id. Based on photos on the Moth Photographers Group website, I believe the subject specimen is Macaria aequiferaria, rather than Psamatodes trientata. The color and markings follow the former better than the latter. Both are found in the sighting locale. http://mothphotographersgroup.msstate.edu/species.php?hodges=6335
