Attracted to a porch light in a rural area. Grid lines are about 6 mm.
Mixed forest of aspen, birch, spruce, fir, pine, oak, and maple. Also conifer-hardwood and willow shrub carr wetlands.
This marks the third year in a row that I have seen this moth here. According to available range maps, it is some 300 miles north of previously known locations. This moth's larvae feed on Viburnum species. One potential host plant here is Viburnum lentago and I did see a Brown Scoopwing on one a few days ago.
