bug of the day

Ok, not the best photo, but a new species for me and yet another example of how it can help to pay attention to host plants...Caught this moth resting on a giant burdock leaf at the Broad Meadow Brook Moth Blitz in Worcester during National Moth Week last month. Wasn't paying any attention at all to the background when I came across what looked like a match for an id: Metzneria lappella...the Burdock Seedhead Moth!
