Anagrapha falcifera


Anagrapha falcifera in Utah
This moth was lounging on a sunflower leaf on Antelope Island. I took one picture
from the car and got out to take a closer one and - off it flew.  © Carol Davis 6-19-2016

Anagrapha falcifera
I found this moth by my porch light in Taylorsville, Utah.  According to Bugguide.net, the larvae
feel on low plants like beet, cabbage, carrot, celery, clover, corn, lettuce, plantain, and
Viburnum
species.  A top view is shown below. © Carol Davis July 9, 2013
