Distinguished Cypress Owlet Moth - Cutina distincta - Cutina distincta
Chillicothe, Ross County, Ohio, USA

This is the 5th Cutina distincta I've had come to my lights since May 17 of this year. There are wetlands within a few miles of my residence but I am not familiar with any Cypress trees. I'm venturing to say that these numbers reflect an established status. Thoughts?

Ohio State U. has web page on cypress. The moth is known from your area.
Thank you

Moved from ID Request.

Can you be more specific?
I can't find anything in regards to OSU and Cutina distincta.
