Walnut Sphinx

Amorpha juglandis

Description:

Large, brown moth with a little iridescence on it. First one I've ever seen! All of the beetles seen on the moth sheet in the photos were that dense everywhere, including in everyone's clothes and on their faces. Was not a pleasant experience!

Habitat:

Oak forest with lots of water nearby. Came to lights at a NMW event. At Trinity River NWR.

Thanks Gilma! All my photos from last night (when I get around to uploading them) will have quite the assortment of critters in them like these do!

Love it, all those creatures...even though it was unpleasant to have them in your face it looks great..specially the second picture.
