Furcula borealis, 12 February 2013

Furcula borealis, the White furcula moth;
Lowndes county, Georgia (12 February 2013).

This is easily one of my favorite moth species, visually. What an incredibly beautiful moth, right? Unfortunately, this is the only White furcula moth I’ve ever seen and managed to photograph. Judging by the data on iNaturalist, this species isn’t observed all that often in the American southeast. They seem to be a bit more abundant to the northeast. There are only a handful of observations recorded in Florida and South Georgia. I’m happy to be among the precious few.
