Fleece-winged Dart
Euxoa velleripennis

Observation date: June 26, 1993
Submitted by: Jim Eckert
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: At 100 watt porch light. This specimen lacks the pale terminal dots of mixta, and thus seems closer to impulsa.
Status: Resident
Verified by: curtis.lehman
Verified date: March 20, 2014
Coordinator notes: Euxoa velleripennis is the closest match visually, however I am questioning the date of June 26, 1993 as this is very early for this species.
