Came to sheet lit by Coleman lantern near the Palm Canyon trailhead. I think this is the first time for me posting two moths of the same species and sex found on the same day. However, there are so few good images of this species currently posted anywhere, I decided to go ahead and do this. Plus, the difference in size and markings between the two individuals was rather significant.
