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.
