Nemoria lixaria, the Red-bordered emerald moth;
Volusia county, Florida (12 March 2015).

Oh yeah, I do love the Red-bordered emerald moth. This is one of those easy-to-miss species. They’re very, very tiny and easy to miss at night. When you do spot them, however, and look closer…? Well, then it seems amazing anyone could miss them. What a beauty.
