I came across my first flightless female moth today--she's set up her nursery on the inside of the latch to the west gate. If it helps, she's directly under red pines, but there are also a lot of oaks. The understory is primarily hazelnut, dogwood and elderberry.
Any idea what type of moth she might be?
Because we're currently trying to keep gypsy moths under control, hubby was wondering if she was a gypsy moth--I don't think so because she has no wings and as far as I know, fem gypsy moths have lovely white wings despite being flightless.
