Imitator Wave Moth (Scopula aemulata)

CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Imitator Wave Moth (Scopula aemulata)

New to my life list this one was resting on the outside of the kitchen window when I woke up the other day. Submitted to Butterflies and Moths of North America database making it the first record added for my county which will put it on the countywide checklist.

Family Geometridae – Geometrid Moths
Subfamily Sterrhinae
Tribe Scopulini

(source of common name is wikipedia)

Can’t find any larval host information on this one.
