  1. WOW!! What a stunner! Maybe Palpita sp.?? Posted 2 years ago
    1. I can't find a species match, but I did find this:

      1. Or, could be Diaphania sp.? Or, some other genus in subf. Spilomelinae?? Posted 2 years ago
      2. Very impressive search skills! I asked about this one on FB and it's a misleading one that has everyone running in the wrong direction yet another person there indeed suggested a Crambid. Really surprising! Posted 2 years ago
        1. The shape made me initially think Arctiidae, but it reminded me of this one, which made me look into crambids:

          1. I'm still not sure though. It just really makes me think of an arctiidae. It's like a crambid-arctiid cross ;P. Hmm. Posted 2 years ago
            1. It also looks tiger moth-ish Posted 2 years ago
            2. I linked you into the FB thread, so you can see your same train of thought replicated there. I think crambids are now quite sure, even more with that Palpita example you gave.

              From my recollection, this moth was larger than the typical crambid but then again, my recollection isn't that reliable.

              1. Okay, thanks...Just read the conversation there. Posted 2 years ago
    2. It looks like it's going to a wedding :) Posted 2 years ago
      1. Hahaha! Posted 2 years ago
        1. I googled "moth bride" just in case it led to an ID...It did not, but I did find this, haha:

          1. Would be an awesome inappropriate gift for non-mothers, will keep this in mind, thanks. Posted 2 years ago
            1. That would be hilarious. Or, give it to Henriette with the inscription, "You're the lamp to my moth."

              Have you seen any of the moth memes on FB??
              Posted 2 years ago
              1. Haha, love that meme. That's completely my style :)

                As for Henriette, romance is hard here in the dirty south. We don't express feeling verbally, that's for weaklings and crazy people.

                1. Haha! I'm not much for romance and typically find it pointless and odd. But, I do chronically and unashamedly say whatever I think and feel without embarrassment. I don't know how to function any other way. Posted 2 years ago
