This is a late posting for Sunday.  It was another good night with 2 possibly 3 new macro moths for the backyard and one new macro for the year.  I also identified 2 micro moth species.  The new backyard macros were Narrow-winged Borer (Photedes defecta) and Puta Sallow Moth (Anathix puta).  The new macro for the year was Brown Arches Moth (Lacinipolia stricta).  I've also included a better photograph of Euxoa comosa.  The two micros are Beet Webworm Moth (Loxostege sticticalis) and Lucerne Moth (Nomophila nearctica).  The Lucerne Moth seems to be quite a common garden micro.
