European Yellow Underwing
Noctua pronuba

Observation date: June 22, 2014
Submitted by: TheIcePixy
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: It was already dead when I found it, but the closest species that it seems to resemble is Xestia Elimata which surprised me because I live in Northern Utah so a sighting a Southern Moth here might mean something to someone. Hence I decided to submit a sighting.
Status: Nonresident
Verified by: Josiah Gilbert
Verified date: June 26, 2014
Coordinator notes: This is not Xestia elimata, which among many other differences lacks the yellow hindwings of N. pronuba.
