Western Furcula

Dear Travis,
We searched through the plates on Pacific Northwest Moths are we believe we have identified your Prominent Moth as a Western Furcula,
Furcula occidentalis (see this plate) and we verified its identity on BugGuide.  According to BugGuide:  “adults fly from April to August” and “larvae feed mostly on willow, and sometimes poplar.”

Location: Washington
