Probably due to the very strong winds there were just 9 moths of 9 species in the traps last night.  2 were new for the year and 1 was a new species for the backyard. The new species for the backyard was Delicate Silver Y (Autographa pseudogamma).  I've been looking for this species for some time.  A. california is similar but has a short, fine black dash connecting the subterminal and postmedian lines near the apex of the forewings.  This dash is abscent in pseudogamma.  The other new species for the year was Many-lined Wainscot (Leucania multilinea). The Yellow-headed Cutworm isn't new but I think this is my best image of the species.
