This post is for the last two nights.  The numbers remain low with 9 moths of 6 species on the 3rd and 10 moths of  8 species last night.  There were 2 new moths for the year last night, Maple Spanworm (Ennomos magnaria) and Bicolored Sallow Moth (Sunira bicolorago).  Sunira bicolorago can be very similar to Sunira verberata but I'm calling this moth bicolorago because of the paler, more yellow colouration and smaller size.  The 1 new moth for the year on the 3rd was Pink-barred Sallow (Xanthia tatago).
