Hodges #3741 - Platynota exasperatana-complex
Tallahassee, Leon County, Florida, USA
June 15, 2015
Size: Forewing ~7mm
At outdoor light. Provides June image record for Florida. Platynota semiustana appears to be the correct ID choice on the basis of overall coloration and pattern of the forewing.


Thank you, Aaron
Who knows what made me conclude that the pattern and coloration fits semiustana and not all those exasperatana in my files.
