Clint, El Paso County, Texas, USA

Found in an alfalfa field using a sweep net.


Thank you John and Jane!
For your frequent and valuable help identifying bugs for so many contributors.

Moved from ID Request.

Any idea of what else might have been in the alfalfa field?
This looks more like a Grass Looper to us, such as Caenurgina or Doryodes, etc. Quite a few feed on Clover and other Legumes. The other possibility would be Lesmone which feeds on the legume Cassia. Something similar here, but this is a tough group

I should have mentioned that there were a few weeds in the alfalfa field that most likely were swept too. Thank you John and Jane for your kind help.
