Jeremy Tatum writes: I found this Phigalia plumogeraria at the Swan Lake Nature House today. This is a male – the female has no functional wings and cannot fly. The male has very nice bipectinate antennae – but this individual was too sleepy to show them. This is usually one of the first macro moths to appear in the year. The next one to be expected is probably the noctuid woodling Egira hiemalis. We look forward to seeing one soon.
