Who needs to eat breakfast when there are moths to ID!
My coworker brought in a cocoon from her garden in a mesh insect holder, and I’ve been keeping an eye on it. Well, turns out there was a second cocoon! The moth hatched the other day, so now I am trying to figure out what species she is. She’s adorable, although I do feel bad that she hatched so late into fall. I figure the warmth of the building tricked her into thinking it’s spring, but it’s only a hypothesis.
