Tallahassee, Leon County, Florida, USA
January 8, 2016
Size: Wingspread ~7mm
Attracted to black light. This appears to me to be an Arta olivalis at an unusual time of the year: however, I have never seen one with a median area darker than the other parts of the wings. I would appreciate comments. Thank you.

Moved
Moved from Olive Arta Moth. I thank Curtis Lehman for correcting my originally assigned ID.

Moved
Moved from Arta. Moved to Arta olivalis species page after realizing on posted images that the median area may come in various shades. The unusually warm December of 2015 may have been responsible for this January encounter.
