It is found from Nova Scotia west across southern Canada to southern British Columbia, north to Alaska and Yukon Territory, and south at least into Manitoba. This wingspan is about 37 mm. The moth flies from June to July depending on the location.A moth is an insect closely related to the butterfly, both being of the order Lepidoptera. Moths form the majority of this order; there are thought to be 150,000 to 250,000 different species of moth (about ten times the number of species of butterfly), with thousands of species yet to be described.
