How about a little insect mystery for today?
Anyone have these visiting your house?
I’ll check back later for your guesses and to post the answer!
Didn’t know this one? Well, you weren’t alone. We had to have help, too, in identifying this Clymene Moth. It is a moth, but one that likes to fly both day and night, and the pattern is distinctive, so it’s easy to identify.
That is, if it is sitting with the wings closed. We don’t repost other sites’ photos, so may we suggest you pop over to this site and have a look at a photo of the moth with its wings open? It looks completely different!
Here’s the Clymene page on Butterflies and Moths of North America, though this doesn’t add a whole lot of information.
Sorry, we don’t usually have so little to say!
