CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Black-dotted Spragueia Moth (Spragueia onagrus)

Larval hosts as listed in the HOSTS database are: Baccharis halimifolia, Castanea pumila, Zea mays (http://www.nhm.ac.uk/research-curation/research/projects/hostplants/search/index.dsml)

In my yard that would be the Baccharis Halimifolia aka Groundselbush or Saltbush.
