Empyreuma pugione, 31 May 2016

Empyreuma pugione, the Spotted oleander moth;
Volusia county, Florida (31 May 2016).

The Spotted oleander moth is one cool little species. They range throughout a good portion of the Caribbean and north through the Florida peninsula. With their brilliantly red wings, Spotted oleander moths can be quite surprising at first sight. They seriously stand out from all that ambient green.
