Just a quick note about yesterdays post.  Gary identified the moth I thought might be Apamea Devastator as Papestra cristifera.  This is a new moth for me and perfectly matches the pictures of this moth on MPG.  So thanks again to Gary.

Last night was fairly good with 6 species, 1 of them a new backyard moth.  They included 2 Common Gluphisia (Gluphisia septentrionis), 1 Willow Kitten (Furcula occidentalis) which could be Poplar Kitten (furcula scolopendrina) but I'm tentativley saying Willow kitten because of  the seasonal distribution of the two, 1 Common Gluphisia (Gluphisia septentrionis), 1 American Angle Shades (Euplexia benesimilis) and 2 Apical Prominent (Clostera apicalis).  The new one is Large Ruby Tiger Moth (Phragmatobia assimilans).  There was 1 Hydriomena sp that looks like the macdunnoughi image on CBIF so I'm very tentatively calling it macdunnoughi .
