This is a late posting for the 24th. I'll post for the today shortly. Cooler overnight temperatures and rain have reduced the number of moths in my light trap for the last two days. On the 24th there were 40 macro moths of 20 species with the one new species for the year being Smith's Dart (Xestia smithii). I've included another picture of Bordered Apamea Moth (Rusty-shoulder Knot?) Apamea sordens, as there is some variation with this species.
