Odd Moth - Diaphania modialis

Odd Moth - Diaphania modialis
Sun City, Manatee County, Florida, USA
June 18, 2009

Moved to Diaphania modialis
Moved from Melonworm Moth.

Mostly dark abdomen (scales are faded but not white) and ribbon like whit patch seem to match D. modialis better.

Moved from Diaphania Moth. (First move was in error to moth ID 5205 rather than different species D. hyalinata)

5205 - Diaphania hyalinata - Melonworm Moth
Very regular at southern melon patches. (no rsvp, thanks)
