Hodges #7137 - Waxmyrtle Wave Moth - Cyclophora myrtaria - Male
Tallahassee, Leon County, Florida, USA
June 12, 2016
Size: Wingspan ≈25mm
Attracted to black light. Provides June image record for Florida. On the basis of posted photos, I consider the heavy speckling of the wings a good criterion to separate Cyclophora myrtaria from the similar C. packardi. Our yard has several Waxmyrtle shrubs.
