Submitted by: Nancy Hamlett
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: This moth was flitting around among stems of grass and shrubs in coastal sage scrub at the Claremont Colleges' Bernard Field Station (www.bfs.claremont.edu). I think it must be Plataea, but I can't tell whether it's P. californiaria, P. personaria, or another similar species.
