Coordinator notes: I am questioning the April 17th date on this. This moth generally doesn't fly till August and September. Also, the plant the moth is resting on looks like a Bidens sp,a hostplant which flowers later in the season than April. The April flight date may be an error. Update: the date was an error and it has been corrected.
