The Moth-ing is Upon Us.

We left the back porch CFL black-light on last night just for kicks.

Apotolype brevicrista

This species is almost always an early-season show up at the lights in our corner of Texas..  Sometimes there are many.  Early-season fliers, they seem to go hand-in-hand with cool February and March mornings.

An additional interesting bug that showed up was this guy:

Ectypia bivittata

This is a species we don't always see.  The dorsal side of its abdomen is an eye-catching yellow-orange.

A nice beginning to our black-lighting season.
