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
species.  A top view is shown below. © Carol Davis July 9, 2013
