Petrophora subaequaria

Observation date: May 22, 2014
Submitted by: edenny

Observation notes: A strange one--the coloring and size is exactly that of a citrine sallow, but this one holds its wings more like a carpet moth of some kind, and there are only two lines across (not three like with the sallow)
