Plume Moth species (large) - Hellinsia balanotes

Plume Moth species (large) - Hellinsia balanotes
De Queen, Sevier County, Arkansas, USA
September 14, 2007
Size: Large. At least an inch.

I Like to Try Guessing on These............
.... helps the ego when I'm right (but I'm usually wrong). so.....
6212.1 - Hellinsia chlorias. but it might be in the 6212-14 -- Species Group -- Hellinsia kellicottii-lacteodactylus-glenni. Stay tuned, I'll try to get an expert opinion.

 
6210 - Hellinsia balanotes
Wrong again! Debbie Matthews says: ".....It is a bit too tan and big for chorias. I think it is most likely Hellinsia balanotes. If that is more or less standard sized window screening you can see it really is a large beast."
