Lichen Sallow Moth

Feralia sp.


A striking lichen mimic moth of the family Noctuidae, subfamily Psaphidinae. This one was in perfect condition, I have found this once before but more battered and without all of the pattern discernible. 2 cm in length.


Garden lights, semi-rural residential area, San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico 2,200 meters.

Thank you Brian. This one doesn't match any of the species from the Pacific Northwest, where they are most common.
