Genista broom moth - Uresiphita reversalis

Genista broom moth - Uresiphita reversalis
Center Twp, Jefferson County, Iowa, USA
August 8, 2018
Moth was found during daylight hours sitting on milkweed. While trying to get its picture, it flew to the fence where this photo was taken. There are several planted Baptisia plants in the perennial beds in the same yard. Native white baptisia are 1/4 mile east of this area...which I have not see infested with the moth larva. The moth larvae are occasionally found on the plants in the yard.
