Sunday Bugs: Orange Mint Moth

Sunday Bugs: Orange Mint Moth


This little moth is an orange mint moth (Pyrausta orphisalis). They are a daytime-flying moth whose larvae like to eat mint leaves. They swarm in large numbers all over the spearmint and lemon balm in my back yard (this one is on a spearmint blossom).
