A New State Record?
Last week I photographed this Lithophane pexata, Plush-naped Pinion Moth, at Dorsey's Knob Park in Morgantown, WV. I don't know for sure, but this may be a first record of it being documented in the state. This is actually a species of the Northeast and eastern Canada where it frequents bogs and relies on alder as a host plant. I can't help but suspect that L. pexata also inhabits the high elevation bogs around Canaan Valley, Cranesville Swamp and perhaps Cranberry Glades.
