Aptly named, White-dotted Prominents have a pair of white dots at the end of a kidney-shaped spot on their smooth yellow and tan forewings. They are common and widely distributed in hardwood forests and riparian zones throughout North America, where the larvae feed on a wide variety of broad-leaved trees and shrubs. The nocturnal adults do not feed, but will readily come to lights. Once drawn in, they usually sit lethargically in one spot.
