Last Week's Mystery Solved
September 28, 2017
On Monday Alice Leurck wondered:
I found this moth on my porch in mid-September. I thought I would just look it up to see what it is.
Well, that did not work very well. Maybe your readers can help.
We had two responses.
Wade Wander (via Deedee Burnside) wrote:
Bronzed Cutworm Moth which can be quite variable in appearance. It is common in late summer and fall.
Patrick Carney suspected it was a Shaded Umber Moth, Nephelodes minians.
Thank you, Wade and Patrick.
Both answers exceeded my pay grade.
