Flannel Moth-Norape virgo (4649)

Copyright Lewis Scharpf

Norape virgo
Hodges #4649
Sabal Palms Sanctuary
Cameron County
Brownsville, Texas
Note: This 557 acre nature reserve is one of the last locations in the Rio Grande Valley with a profuse grove of sabal palms.
The moth is often mistaken for a butterfly because it visits flowers during the day as shown here.
