1 cm long moth
Thanks to you both! This seems to be a rare little moth - only 6 on the bamona database & none from Tennessee!
Definitely Chalcoela pegasalis! If you look at the other one, the gray part is just gray, no markings or pattern. I am happy that my first second was not completely out of the row...
Thanks for the ID Jacob!
Correct, bayucca. Chalcoela sp., Chalcoela pegasalis:http://bugguide.net/node/view/30632Please confirm, as the Sooty-winged Chalcoela is very similar.
Pyraloidea?, Crambidae? Just a first second guess...
