Bristly Cutworm (Lacinipolia renigera)

Posted on Jun 29, 2015

The Bristly Cutworm (Lacinipolia renigera) moth is apparently also called the Kidney-spotted Minor. I suppose I can understand that. In this case it was called to the sheet by an ultraviolet light, allowing me to photograph it before disappearing the next time I checked on the moth activity. Every time we try any nocturnal surveying we end up with different results with the thousands of often little-known species we call moths.
