Four-spotted Moth (two photos)
Other names include:
"Field Bindweed Moth"
I saw this little moth on the beach at Utah Lake and
kept hoping that it would land for a
minute - and it did! I took
about five shots - one more below. © Carol Davis
It was introduced to the United States (from Italy) in
in 1987. The larvae feed on Field Bindweed (what
call Morning Glory) and they weaken the plant, making it
susceptible to disease. Read
about it here.
