Mexican Agapema marches on

This male was discovered in the Marathon Motel Cafe by Dione Tedrick-Belshe, who also took this photo from her cell phone.

Agapema anona dyari was first discovered on motel grounds back on 8 October 2010.

Since then several more individuals of this beautiful silkmoth have been encountered.

The adults of this species reach their peak flight in October - November.

Hopefully we will encounter more here in the Marathon Basin this fall.
