Green Pug (Pasiphila rectangulata)

Posted on Jul 4, 2015

This looks like a Green Pug (Pasiphila rectangulata) moth to me, quite literally. It has almost a seasonal sort of holiday feel to it! I do not expect to be seeing it come Christmas or even St. Patrick’s Day, though. It was easy to spot on this garage door, but I would think finding it so well camouflaged in the field would be a difficult task. Happy Fourth!
