The wingspan is 21-28 mm. Adults are on wing from May to September. It is a day-flying species. There are two to three generations per year.
Crambidae, Pyraustinae, Spilomelini, Desmia sp., it is either Desmia funeralis or Desmia maculalis. Unfortunately it is not possible to ID this one from a picture. You need the native specimen for DNA. Both are reported from Kentucky. I would go either with Desmia sp. or Desmia funeralis/maculalis as scientific name with mentioning the tricky ID details in the description section.http://mothphotographersgroup.msstate.ed...http://mothphotographersgroup.msstate.ed...
