Synchlora frondaria, the Southern emerald;
Volusia county, Florida (17 May 2020).
I’m feeling the need to beef up my Lepidopteran arsenal on Floridensis. So many moths (and butterflies); so little time. Featured here is a wee Southern emerald — one of those tiny moths you’ve seen a million times without really seeing them. Snagging a few half-decent shots of this tiny one was not easy.
