Paectes sp. - Paectes nubifera - Male
Tallahassee, Leon County, Florida, USA
July 18, 2012
Size: ~17mm length
At outdoor light. Forgotten Paectes from my "archives" that I had tentatively called Hodges #8965 Paectes rubifera, encouraged by Machele White's post and the pinned specimens on MPG, but nevertheless wishful thinking, I suppose. What do the experts think? And those sheathed antennae - don't remember having ever seen them on another moth!

Paectes nubifera - Hodges #8965
Moved from Moths.

Note the spelling.
Compare to the pinned photo at CBIF.
Thank you!

Yes, nubifera.
Had it right on my filed image but misread it and never gave it another look, just went by Hodges#. Thank you for confirming my hunch.
