Your letter to the bugman: Mr. Bugman,
Can you help me identify this particular bug? I have moved my family out into the country, near where I grew up. I have uncovered and discovered just about every bug known to man as a kid, but have never seen one of these. It was crawling around in some leaves/twigs and bark, on the ground, under a pecan tree. It moved fairly quickly, but stopped when I went near it. The picture was taken on 9/10/18, in the early evening. We are still in the hot summer days here, but this was a relatively cool day, so to speak, with highs in the mid 80’s. My 6 year old daughter will love to hear from you, since I obviously couldn’t answer her. Haha!
How you want your letter signed: Mr. Bugman
This is a flightless female moth, but we need a bit more time to provide you with a species identification.
