Have reason to believe this is a Lichen Moth, also have separate spotting of same species, any help in confirming ID appreciated.
Reclaimed farmland- oak hickory maple forest
No problems Chester. It does have VERY similar colorations to a lichen moth.
Thanks bee, I thought it looked more like a beetle, but saw a picture of a lichen moth with similiar coloration.
Hi Chester.I am certain this is a net-winged beetle. A very moth-like beetle for sure. I'm not sure of the species, but I have a link to a reference that can help you below. Keep up the great spottings! http://bugguide.net/node/view/366
