California oak moth without antenna? - Phryganidia californica
Elkhorn Slough Reserve, Monterey County, California, USA

This is just one of a large "flock" of California oak moths (Phryganidia californica). I saw mostly males, a few females, and then this one with the big head, big eyes, and no antenna. What's the story? It's a strange one.
