Crambid Snout Moth - Hodges #4943 - Crocidophora pustuliferalis
Mobile (Dog River), Mobile County, Alabama, USA
April 3, 2009
I'm guessing a Crambid Snout Moth but I have not been successful finding a match. Please "guide" me in the right direction. Thanks.

Brian Scholtens confirms 4943
B.P.

Possibly 4943 - Crocidophora pustuliferalis (fem.)
... I've sent the photo off for confirmation by an expert. If I am correct in the ID this is a cane feeding species not often encountered due to its restricted habitat.

I have an abundance of cane (Arundinaria). You will see the largest patch to the far right of my driveway
