Ailanthus Webworm - Atteva aurea

Ailanthus Webworm - Atteva aurea
along Hwy 88, near Praag, Buffalo County, Wisconsin, USA
July 15, 2010
Came to UV lights. Ailanthus doesn't grow this far north, so it must be eating something else. This is the first one I've ever seen here. There are a lot of photos in the guide already, but I thought I'd add this one because it's far from Ailanthus trees, and it's at the western edge of Wisconsin - at the western edge of its range.
