This is the first one I've found in it's natural environment--as opposed to a blacklight.

The ridged pronotum and more than 6 "wishbones" gives this one away:

Headed down to Mo Ranch in Hunt, Texas for a Texas Parks and Wildlife meeting for a few days. It included lots of meetings, but of course, we went outside some too. :)

Had a BLAST doing some moth-ing with @benhutchins @cullen @jsinghurst and @annastrong ! Most of these are brand new to me, so I'll have to devote some time to finding out the ID's... Stay tuned. :)
