    Default Stealth Fighter Plane Moth for ID



    Hi, I bet somebody has posted this before but I searched all the way back to 2007 and can't find it.

    Also did a search but "dark blue moth" didn't generate any results.

    I hope you can id it for me again... thanks!
    Butterfly dogs don't like baths. They only like to puddle... in their own pee!

    As discussed, this is one of the species of the family Ricaniidae. It's quite common and many of us have shot it before. If you disturb it, it jumps off with a strong flick.

    Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try

    Yes, it is a hopper. It is often mistaken for a moth.
