Spotted straw moth

Heliocheilus turbata

Notes:

This might not be the most dazzling looking moth, but this is a very exciting spotting for me - it'ss the first sighting of this species anywhere in the US on the butterfliesandmoths.org database!

Thanks birdlady! I don't know if it's rare or just overlooked because it is a bit nondescript, but I think it is quite pretty with the little 'hearts' on it's wings!
