Pale-banded Dart Moth

Agnorisma badinodis

Description:

This moth has a wingspan of approximately 1 5/8 inches. It has a pale brown head with a black “collar.” Behind the collar is a patch of blondish hair in a dark brown section followed by a lighter brown section with a black dot. The margin is wide and dark brown. There are two thin wavy, tan cross-bands separating the two dark brown sections from the lighter brown section. The larva is probably similar to other darts which are brown to gray with longitudinal white to cream colored stripes and hairless. The larvae feed on many plants such as asters, clover and tobacco.
