Erebidae: Zanclognatha? - Zanclognatha laevigata
Erskine, Polk County, Minnesota, USA
July 12, 2014
Size: Length ~ 1.5 cm
I'm thinking this specimen may belong to the genus Zanclognatha, But I'll archive it here for now.

Moved from Zanclognatha.

Thanks, Steve!
Thank you for the species ID, Steve. ;-)

Moved from Erebidae.

Thanks, A. Hendrickson!
Thank you for confirming the genus! ;-)

Carl, I am not really sure but did a mass move to Z. because I know that Steve Nanz is working to "clean up" the genus and it would be helpful to have all possibles there - makes the elimination process much easier. You will here soon I am sure if I got it in the wrong genus. I had more than 10 today that he had moved after I put them in Genus. If you are curious you could check the Species Pages for INFO. I think he has changed a lot of them.
