Moth Time at the Nature Center (pt. 1):
So, there have been quite a number of moths appearing at the nature center here (in Houston) over the past few days. The most noticeable by far is this large Tersa Sphinx (Xylophanes tersa) that appeared on the front porch this morning. The body was about 4.5 cm long.
This species is found throughout Eastern North America all the way down to central South America. As larvae, they feed on the leaves of a variety of plants, but here in the park they’re feeding on Pentas, Firebush (Hamelia patens), and Catalpa.
Moth Time at the Nature Center (pt. 2):
Yesterday, I came back from birdwatching out in the park around the nature center (here in Houston, TX), and I noticed the underside of the porch was covered in tiny moths. Most of them were just little brown jobs, but there were a few that were more ornate. There were several small colorful Ailanthus Webworm Moths (Atteva aurea), and this tiny sassy little guy was all excited waving his anal tufts (aka brush pencils) around, spreading pheremones.
Its a male Melonworm Moth (Diaphania hyalinata), family Crambidae. His wingspan was about 2.5 cm. This species is found across central and eastern North America. The larvae feed on the leaves of plants in the family Cucurbitaceae (melons, squashes, and gourds).
