Scalloped border moth - Redectis vitrea
Maplesville, Chilton County, Alabama, USA
May 15, 2018
This was a brown moth that had two white spots just above the PM line. The PM line started out from the costa very bold and black and fairly straight. But it narrowed and became very wavy on its way to the inner margin. The ST line started out at the costa fairly straight as a series of closely spaced white dots, but the dots widened and it took a dive downward before coming back up to the inner margin. The terminal line was a series of black dots and there also seemed to be a fine line of dark brown below that. His outer margin was deeply scalloped. His fringe was brown at the apices, then white, then changed back to brown at the bottom of the deepest scallop before returning to the anal angle.
