Pitkin, Vernon Parish, Louisiana, USA

Size: ?
I purposely did not alter my lighting on this photograph. Assumably it is C. pallida as are all Crambidia posted for Lousiana, but personally I cannot tell C. pallida from C. uniformis and I don't know the size of the screen squares to estimate the wing length of this specimen. Unless I missed something no spread specimens have been posted to BG and C. uniformis is supposed to range into Louisiana according to MPG.

Hopefully one of the other attendees will post a more "uncoiled" photograph of this moth. I only saw it once.
