I’d appreciate any advice as to the identity of this unusual-looking butterfly/moth I found resting on emergent wetland plants around the western shore of Lake Carl Blackwell yesterday. I’m assuming it’s a moth given the wide splay of its wings at rest, but it was also reminiscent of a skipper, so I’m not sure. It flew slowly but its rapid wingbeats made for a beautiful display of black and white. The animal was about 1″ wide, wingtip to wingtip.
