Dear Friends, Can anyone identify this moth for my Dad?  If he knows what it 
is he will stop calling it a butterfly.  That is so irritating!  Any host 
plant info would really be a bonus.  Thanks in advance, Bill.

the moth was identified by SEL

as Leucania linita --- does anyone have any information about feeding
habits - range - etc. 

I reared this animal on Phragmites australis -- and would like to know
if that is a new host.
