Fireweed Clearwing Moth - Albuna pyramidalis - female

Fireweed Clearwing Moth - Albuna pyramidalis - Female
Botanie Creek Rd., N of Lytton, Thompson-Nicola Regional District, British Columbia, Canada
August 3, 2014
Sad story behind this one: i found this female dead, hidden in a partially charred, large cardboard box. The box had no lid and the moth was hidden in a corner. At the time of the finding a massive and very recent forest fire completely destroyed that part of the forest.
