2 new backyard moths

Just 3 moths of 3 species in the light trap last night but this included 2 new backyard moths!  One was only my second Heliothinae (flower moth), Darker Spotted Straw Moth (Heliothis phloxiphaga).  The other new species was a dagger moth, Fragile Dagger Moth (Acronicta fragilis).  That is, I’m reasonably confident it is Acronicta fragilis.
