Matt - you didn't tell me you saw one of these. I guess I was busy at the time with my Alpine Darner!

Yes, I saw this at about the same time you were first seeing the Alpine Darner, then I came over and in the excitement of seeing the Alpine Darner again and getting photos, I forgot all about this little moth.
