Ofatulena duodecemstriata

El Paso, El Paso County, Texas
August 10, 2015
Determined by Salvador Vitanza
Confirmed by Terry Harrison who said: “Your photo happened to catch the moth at an angle that shows colors that are due to iridescence, which is visible at certain angles of incident light but not visible at other angles. This iridescence is seen in many spp. of grapholitine tortricids.”
