A Rare Find

Last summer, Arowhon Pines held a Moth Workshop led by Jason J. Dombroskie, Ph.D., Collection Manager, Cornell University Insect Collection & Coordinator of the Insect Diagnostic Lab, Cornell University.  Jason's extensive knowledge and enthusiasm were contagious and all of us “caught the bug".

Last September, long time guests Ann and Brian Gray noticed a pinkish moth near a light at Arowhon.  After much research, they could not get a perfect match or identification.  The Grays, who have been volunteer naturalists in the Leslie Street Spit area in Toronto for the last 17 years, contacted Jason for help.

Turns out, their find is very rare... CLICK HERE to identify it!
