The Mulberry Wing
Here is another species that belongs to a group that you wouldn't first suspect. It's The Green Marvel (Agriopodes fallax) and its affinity is to the Acronictinae subfamily of Noctuids, a group that is genetrally characterized by gray colored moths.  This one is a bit more colorful, I'd say. This was one of two individuals at Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge on June 9. There is only one previous record from Jamaica Bay -- that from last year. So the logical question is whether this is a new colonization. If so, glad to have you aboard.
