Black wings with a large median and other smaller white spots; those at margin give wings a ragged look. Hindwing has white median patch. Wingspan 15-23 mm. Conspicuous when seen flying in daytime because of bold pattern.
Texas Laurel in a wildlife habitat garden. Photo 1 actually has two on the same bloom, second wing and abdomen slightly visible.
Spent 2 hours on March 20 chasing this kind of moth down a trail. This morning they are all over the blooms on the spirea and Texas laurel.
