Grape Leaffolder Moth
Desmia funeralis

Observation date: June 01, 2014
Submitted by: dncms
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Found dead moth in house, that I think is same as one not confirmed on Record 975474. I tried taking it apart to show abdomen and dorsal side of wing, hoping that's the side in photo. I measured one wing as being about 1.2 centimeters. I don't know if this helps in identifying the species, but couldn't resist trying since we found this dead one.
