kenora, Ontario, Canada
June 28, 2007
when I logged on yesterday this moth was on whatever page I happened to open with, and it was named...Rosy-something-or-other. But I haven't been able to get back to that page. I found it in the daytime, in the grass. I placed it on a red pine needle for a last picture before putting it back in the grass.

How-to-find-it hints
If you remember a couple of words in the post you saw, try Search. Note that you can use wild cards. Probably wouldn't have helped here.

Assuming the post was in ID Request, you can look through a ton of these relatively quickly, as opposed to the tedium of going through pages of Recent posts.

Very pretty insect BTW!

Schinia?

 
Yes
S. florida, Primrose Moth

not Rosy
This isn't a Rosy Maple Moth... I think it's a Primrose moth
