Nemoria elfa - Male
Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve/National Wildlife Refuge, Jackson County, Mississippi, USA
December 15, 2009
Size: ~ 1 in.
I believe this is the brown phase of Nemoria bistriaria. Any help on verification would be appreciated!

Moved from Nemoria.

7029 - Nemoria elfa ??
I sent the photo to John Gruber who will probably respond soon.

John Gruber Agrees - Nemoria elfa
"Nemoria elfa indeed - the abdomen and line patterns, strong discal spots as well as the presence of cypress (Taxodium) at Grand Bay all leave little doubt that this is a brown form Nemoria elfa - very nice one too!"

Moved from Moths.
