Moth ID answer to Web question
I just found out that Daniel had taken on the challenge of finding the ID to this moth after seeing its photo on another Web site. He used that photo to post on to see if anyone recognized it. Apparently I was the first to view his posting among users of this site who recognized the moth. Here's the link to the writeup they gave us:


Wow, great! Thanks for the quick reply! Just what I was looking for :)
