Dark Marathyssa

Marathyssa inficita 8955


Violet grey with obscure bands and markings, with strange resting position of the wings and body. Abdomen is pointed in the air at rest.


Spotted on a sheet hanging on my porch with black lights and halogens shining on it at night to attract moths. We live in a gated lake community surrounded by rural agricultural land, and some wooded areas. National Moth Week 2017.
