The Phantom Hemlock Looper Moth
Leaving the porch light on seemed to attract a “flock” of these fellows. The top photo is a female while the lower one is a male. Once again ID was a bit of a problem. Too many moths look the same. It was quite the experience taking the photos with potential subjects fluttering all around my head and landing anywhere they chose!
Nepytia phantasmaria, the phantom hemlock looper, is a species of geometrid moth in the family Geometridae. It was described by Herman Strecker in 1899 and is found in North America.
