Moth Monday: Tubeworm Moth

Perched moth
Burrowing Webworm Moth, Acrolophus sp., perhaps Acrolophus variabilis
San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary, 2008-08-10

This moth is one of many I’ve found in the early morning outside the restrooms at the San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary. They leave the outside lights on most nights, so a lot of moths tend to still be roosting there come morning.
