Red-waisted Florella Moth: Syngamia florella

 Syngamia florella, the Red-waisted Florella Moth largely goes unnoticed here in SW Florida, as it is only 1.5cm wingtip to wingtip, hides in foliage and is given to fast, short flights.

 Here on Bidens alba, Spanish Needle or Hairy Beggar's Tick....our ubiquitous weed and terrific butterfly nectar plant!

I would have missed this one, but I was searching for Sweat Bees, having seen an iridescent green one recently.
