August 19, 2009
Size: wingspan ~37mm
RWWA-1077 BOLD DNA A species level match could not be made but puts it close to Alastria macho as BOLD does not have specimens of A. chico for comparison.
ID confirmed by Lars Crabo : "It is Alastria chico, not so long ago described by Troubridge and Lafontaine. When I arrived in the PNW we called it Nedra tropicalis. Things change. Morrisonia is an eastern NA genus. Another county record, by the way."
Locality: Coastal SW Washington State at the edge of Willapa Bay geo:lat=46 37.273 ge=-123 56.8140:lon
