An unusual find at the MV light tonight- A female Black Witch. Common in
some areas but in Northwestern Pa. they are a bit rare. Really neat moth
and a big surprise. I was hoping for a late season Underwing or 2. 

My resources list Cassia and catsclaw as the host plant. I of course dont
have any of these since I am sure they are zone 7 or 8 hardiness.  Does
anyone know of any other host plant in the event I get a few ova. Any help

Thanks in advance.
