Woolly Gray Moth - Lycia ypsilon - Male
Columbia, Boone County, Missouri, USA
March 29, 2015
Just showed up tonight. At first thought it was a dark form of #6660 Phigalia strigataria - Small Phigalia, which has been here in good numbers, but looking closer, I believe this is #6652 Lycia ypsilon - Woolly Gray Moth. And it is woolly, to be sure. measures 15mm TL 27WS (as it sits, unextended). Please correct me if I'm wrong, but looks like first Data for Missouri.
