Larch Tolype

August 12, 2016

We saw quite a number of these moths (many of them quite worn-looking), and I didn't realise until I got home that there seems to be quite a lot of variation between them. I think they are all Larch Tolype (Tolype laricis), but I'm not quite sure. It's slightly surprising how some of them have kind of a bee mimic thing going on. 2016/08/06,07, Wentworth NH.
