First new macro moth species of the year

As I had hoped it was a better night with 6 species in the light trap.  1 micro and 5 macro moths.  The new backyard species was Plush-naped Pinion (Lithophane pexata).  I will ask for help with regards to the micro moth ID.  Here’s the macro list and photographs.  The Subdued Quaker was quite a nice specimen.

Dot-and-Dash Swordgrass Moth - Xylena curvimacula
False Pinion Moth - Litholomia napaea
Nameless Pinion Moth - Lithophane innominata
Plush-naped Pinion - Lithophane pexata
Subdued Quaker - Orthosia revicta
