This one appeared out of the blue-I'm told they don't come to lights-but normally stay around their food tree-Poplars I think and I don't have any of those here.
Wow that is so interesting!! Do you lure these or do they appear out if the blue?
This is another I had a terrible time getting an ID on and the photo is rather OLD and the moth wasn't in the best condition either. It took I think a year to get an ID-there were NO photos of that species when I first posted it-other than like 2 faded collection photos. There are still very few photos. So I pretty much waited for someone to ID it for me...on Bug Guide. There are only 8 photos on bug guide-4 of which are my old ones. Only one was found in PA apparently.
How do you I identify these moths?
