Episemasia solitaria

Episemasia solitaria
Baker, Okaloosa County, Florida, USA
March 25, 2012
Size: 1/2 inch
found eating American Holly

Moved from Geometrid Moths.

This has a face and the swollen early abdominal segments
that remind us of Episemasia cervinaria - Hodges#6714 which is apparently found on holly. Wonder if yours might be Episemasia solitaria?? Our info page says the host is Ilex opaca!
Can't find any images online but guessing this is it! We will move it there and try to confirm the ID

Thank you for updating this!

Moved from ID Request.
