Moth Monday: California on my Mind

Last weekend I saw moths everywhere I went in Staten Island and Brooklyn. This weekend I couldn’t find a single one so we return to William R. Mason Regional Park in California for Hodges#5451.2, Parapediasia torquatella:

Crambid snout moth

I found this one crawling around a lit building at night. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of information about it on the Web. It may have only been described as recently as 1995.

Maybe by next week I can find another New York moth, though before you know it will get too cold here for moths.
