Palpidia pallidior, 17 May 2020

Palpidia pallidior, the Pale palpidia;
Volusia county, Florida (17 May 2020).

A species seemingly limited in range to the Florida peninsula and perhaps Cuba, the Pale palpidia is another easy-to-miss species. Fairly tiny, this is one of the tiny moths we see flapping about near our outdoor lights at night. Zooming in, however, we can see its subtle-yet-dynamic patterning. Another reminder to look closer at the world around us. There is beauty everywhere.
