Staghorn-who-what? Euscirrhopterus cosyra; the Staghorn Cholla Moth.
These little spatters of "monsoon season" sprinkles that started a week ago have kicked a few bugs up; a lot of new stuff for us, a lot of diversity and pretty decent numbers considering the slllooooow spring. Now our yard has been graced with the presence of a cacti-muncher. Very exciting!
