Peach Tree Borers
Thanks to your site, I now know that these are Peach Tree Borers. This amorous pair was spotted in Denver. Apparently they wandered over from the Western Slope, where we have terrific peaches. I thought I’d send along the photo if you wanted to use it. Thanks for the great site!
Thanks so much for sending us your awesome photo of mating Peachtree Borers, Synanthedon exitiosa. The sexual dimorphism of this wasp mimic moth is quite remarkable as the larger darker female looks like a totally different species than her mate.
