    Em Noble says

    This moth was feeding on the nectar from flowers on Olearia ramulosa ssp. ramulosa (Twiggy Daisy-bush) along with Nectar Scarab Beetles in Enfield State Forest, Scarsdale. I have only found one small population of Twiggy Daisy-bush in Enfield SF in the Scarsdale/ Smythesdale area.
