Small butterfly about 1 inch long. I can't find it in my Audubon field guide. It's on goldenrod near the Androscoggen River.

White Striped Black
Looks like our friend the White Striped Black moth. Check the discussion on Photo#5429- on about page 6 of this request section

Hey guys
I appreciate your willingness to always jump in and help out. Did you know you can actually show the thumbnails quite easily? Links are easy too. Just wanted to let you know in case you weren't aware (feel free to continue as before):
More information

Thanks for the help. That's why I couldn't find it in the butterfly book! Perhaps you'll identify the pink moth I'll post next! I need to get a moth book!
