I had an Id suggestion.
Moth Photographers Group – Plate 15 – Pterophoridae
thanks so much dhobern!
Thanks J,When ever yo have time! :)
Emma, I think that suggestion may be as specific as you can get. I will look later, if you are interested in finding a possible species.
The moth was able to escape thru a rip in the mesh.
BTW Thanks J.!
Any thing close to what you are thinking?
I reloaded this spotting . As a result the ID suggestion got deleted. The previous suggestion was,Amblyptilia sp. Amblyptilia Moth Photographers Group – Plate 15 – Pterophoridae
Hmm...Emma, I may be able to get to subfamily or even luckier, genus, though these Plume moths may be the most closely related moths!
It is a plume moth , Anna. But as usual ,they have so many species!!
Thanks J. !! Any ideas on the ID? Now that you saw it!
Beautiful moth! Could you consider adding this to my mission, Moths of the World? http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/8841...Thanks!
Some kind of plume moth?
Lat: 36.70, Long: -118.76
