Butterfly sighting

I only spendt a couple of hours this morning at SANC and most of it was pulling weeds in the woods, so only a few butterflies to report. I did find an interesting-looking moth in the woods called a Bent-Lined Carpet Moth, Costaconvexa centrostrigaria, which despite its name does not eat carpets. The caterpillars eat knotweed.
