I Found many of these moths on, Bidens bipinnata (Spanish Needle). They never close their wings, even when under leafs. I hope they don’t think they are hiding.

Dear F. Allen,
Thanks so much for providing a photo of a new species for our site.  We matched it to an image  on the Moth Photographers Group website.  The scientific name is Syngamia florella.
