8540 – Gonodonta nutrix
General Species Information
Host Plant: Annona species, American Brunfelsia (Brunfelsia americana), and tomatoes
Historical Range: Southernmost Florida and the Caribbean
Our Experience with this Species: This moth has been found on Key Largo and Big Pine Key in the months of May, June and August.
Notes: This species shows up at lights very uncommonly however searching for larvae on fresh growth of Anona species proves very easy at certain times of the year. I believe this species is far more cammon than one would think by looking at how many show up at lights. Larvae are brightly colored
