I didn't see an underwing photo of this moth, so I decided to post this one that I took last night. It was attracted to a black light.

Did you know you can post directly to the guide when you know the ID? I will tag and move this one.

I tried to figure out how do
I tried to figure out how do do that and failed. Can you let me know how? Thanks.

From the Images section of Help:
If you're confident about the identity, you should feel free to submit the image directly to the appropriate place in the guide. First navigate to the best place in the guide. Searching for the scientific name and restricting the results to guide pages might be the quickest way to get there. Once you're in the right spot, click the images tab and you'll see all the images for that spot along with an "add image" link just like for "ID Request". Proceed like you would for "ID Request".

The only tricky thing, I think, is you have to make sure you're on the Image tab of the species in question (not Browse, which looks similar).

Oh, and the scientific name shows up automatically - I'll edit it out of your titles.
