This little butterfly landed near me on the trail along New River in Southwest Virginia. I haven’t been able to ID it, though I have searched online. Please help!
The reason you are having a difficult time with this identification is that this is a diurnal Owlet Moth, the Grapevine Epimenis, Psychomorpha epimenis.
No wonder! Thank you so much! It’s such a pretty little moth–new to me! You guys are great!!!
