Orange moth with dirty apices - Gerdana caritella
Maplesville, Chilton County, Alabama, USA
May 15, 2018
This was an orange moth with lines made up of patches of tiny brown dots. There were four such patches along the AM line. His PM line had two prominent patches at the anal angle, a few of them with white centers. The scattering of dots continued down to the costa. His apices had many little dots which gave it a dirty appearance. His fringe was yellowish orange. Gerdana caritella - Hodges#1144?
