Butterfly sighting

Location: Tie Mill Rd.
Florence County

11-3:00. Clouds early but clearing with mostly sunny skies and temps near 70 degrees. Lots of Infant Moths, which were very distracting, and fewer of the unidentified moth, which was slightly smaller and flying with the Infant Moths. Thanks to Les Ferge for identifying this moth as Leucobrephos brephoides (Walker, 1857)Although azures were found yesterday in Iowa County, I was shocked that they were flying in Florence County.
