    Deep Yellow Euchlaena - (Euchlaena amoenaria)

    Apart from their attraction to lights, Deep-Yellow Euchlaena are somewhat mysterious despite a range that covers half the continent.

    Picture of Deep Yellow Euchlaena
    Staff Writer (8/15/2017): Part of the Geometer moth family, the Deep-Yellow Euchlaena rests with its wings flat, allowing its rich shades to be fully displayed. The tips of both wings have light patches. Each hindwing has a tiny black dot in the center, between two thin brown lines that cross the wingspan left to right. Dark brown marks litter the entire wing surface giving it the appearance of birch tree bark. The host plant that their caterpillars feed from is unknown. Up to two generations a year have been produced, but beyond that, little information has been collected on this species.

    BUGFINDER: What Kind of Bug is This...
    BUGFINDER allows for a quick search of the Insect Identification database by selecting primary color, secondary color, number of legs and the territory / state in question. If only one color is present on your insect, select it again as its SECONDARY color. Remember that the more details you can offer, the better your chances of finding a match. As a rule of thumb, six legs are typical for most insects whereas spiders generally have eight legs.
