Harrisimemna trisignata, 21 July 2013

Harrisimemna trisignata, the Harris’s three-spot moth;
Lowndes county, Georgia (21 July 2013).

I photographed this fantastic Noctuidae on our exterior back wall in Valdosta, Georgia, a decade back. To date, it’s the only only Harris’s three-spot I’ve ever seen and photographed. Though it ranges throughout much of the eastern half of the United States (and even Canada), Harris’s three-spot doesn’t appear to be a hyper-observed species — judging by its iNaturalist observations. They’re certainly well documented and observed, but mine is the only one reported in southern Georgia. I’d love to find another!
