The Herald - Scoliopteryx libatrix

The Herald - Scoliopteryx libatrix
Mason Farm Biological Reserve, Orange County, North Carolina, USA
September 15, 1992
Attracted to moth bait during a survey by Dr. Stephen Hall of the North Carolina Natural Heritage Program. Date was, I believe, September 1992, and is entered here as an approximation. This moth is very uncommon in the lower Piedmont of North Carolina--as of 1992, Dr. Hall had only seen this one during his surveys in the area. It seems to be a more northern species.

Date approximate. Image updated 4/27/19. Still the only BugGuide record for North Carolina as of then!
