Identified by Linnaeus
Huh, i thought Grammia virgo Linnaeus was a weird scientific name, but figured i'd roll with it as everyone here seemed to be using it :P
Thank you for adding more photos to this spotting, it really helped with the ID! By the way, the "Linnaeus" can be placed under the notes or description, as he was the person who named this moth, not the part of the scientific name. Thank you again!
No worries, glad to help
Jakubko,The hind wings are decently visible in photos 4 and 5.akussr,Thanks for taking time to make the comparison! Makes it much easier to tell which species it is
Pretty sure its a G. virgo Linnaeusi threw together a quick wing pattern comparison for youhttp://i212.photobucket.com/albums/cc12/...
Sorry for the double suggestion! Amorgan is right about the genus, but it is hard to tell which species without seeing the hindwings.
