Clearwing Moth - Albuna fraxini
Buchanan, Berrien County, Michigan, USA

Size: 14mm long, 23mm wingspan
This small, completely brown clearwing moth was caught flying over some lawn grass. It has distinct circular markings on it's wings, making it unique from any other clearwing moth I could find that lived in the area. An ID (species or genus) would be much appreciated.
