This moth was seen at a mercury vapor light sheet around 10:40 pm. The larvae of this moth feed on the leaves of various low-growing plants, including alfalfa, beans, clover, corn, cotton, peas and strawberries. They have a yellowish, pale green or dark greenish body and a yellowish-brown head and reach a length. The hindwings, and forewings, are brown, with the hindwings being a lighter shade of brown than the foewings.
In my garden, Fort Worth, Texas. Mercury vapor lamp.
