Photographed this moth at Reelfoot Lake in the northwest corner of TN. What is it?
This is a Moth in the family Geometridae, possibly a diurnal species, and at first we thought it might be a Chickweed Geometrid which is pictured on BugGuide, but closer inspection reveals it to be a distinct species. We will attempt a more thorough identification in the future.
