Western Red Twin-spot

A moth we assume to be a Western Red Twin-spot spent most of 2 October 2021 on one of our screen windows. This species is variably patterned and flies in the spring and in the fall. This month is found from British Columbia to California, east to Arizona and Utah. The larvae feed on begonia flowers of Begonia. It may not be coninsindental that this individual perched near Erika’s petunias.
