Grapevine Epimenis Psychomorpha epimenis Drury - VT Photos

"Yes it is a very pretty earliest spring-time flier:
Psychomorpha epidermis, the grapevine epidermis.

Where and when?  I've only seen it twice in my
life, it is reported as uncommon. 

It is a moth."

Thank You Don for the ID! I Photographed it in my backyard (on one of my two Evans Bali Cherry Trees), on Kirby Rd. South Burlington, VT on 5/18/2016 : 3:28 pm to 3:30 pm. Also viewed on 5/17/2016.


 About 3" wide from wing tip to wing tip with wings spread wide open.

                Stop, Look, and Listen; Nature will astound you!
