Green Leuconycta

Leuconycta diphteroides

Notes:

One of my favorite moths, I am so happy to have found! The moth had very striking colors! Seemed to mimic lichen. First photo is a color edit to enhance the real colors of the moth which the porch light had distorted. This is the green variation of Leuconycta diphteroides. To see my spotting of the white variation, see: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/120...
