Come spend two nights of moth-ing in Stokes County at our new property Vade
Mecum!  We'll be staying in the historic hotel with two stories of wrap
around porches to hang our lights on!  It's very rustic as it's in the
middle of renovation, but the lights are on and the plumbing works!
Several of the hotel rooms still have beds/mattresses even, and there are
several cabins nearby.  We will be the first group to stay here!

The habitat is a lower slope/ridge close to Dan River bottomlands, with
some old fields, a clear cut (before we got it) a small waterfall, spring
house, old mill site, etc.  Should be some great day time sweeping!

Mark your calendars for nights of Wed July 20 and Thu July 21, I'll send
out more details when I know them.

thanks!

July 24, 2015 was a successful National Moth Night at Eno River State Park
in Orange County.  In just a few hours Clyde Sorenson, Patrick Coin,
Jennifer Fenwick and myself with the help of about two dozen other folks,
identified exactly 100 species.  I have a couple bad micro photos that will
remain unidentified and I'm sure some of the other participants may add
some, we had families, experts and more all taking photos and showing them
to us, a very productive night of mothing!

All have been entered into the state parks NRID and in turn Moths of NC
website!  Tony Desantis has been adding a lot to the park list, so only a
couple dozen were new, but three micros if correctly identified would be
new state records.  Though we are still looking for experts to confirm

TN Moths ; Moth List Subject: [ncsc-moths] NMW count Hey all, 

Last night I did my once a year count of every species I see during one night 
of mothing. There were some big holes in the list of species such as no 
Sphingids (unless I count the many Hemaris diffinis seen before dark) and the 
only Saturniid was 1 worn Dryocampa rubicunda. I've still got a few similar 
ones to work on the but count will be ± 240 species which is better than I 
thought. Ken Childs

Nope, that is a Wasp, likely some sort of Paper Wasp.

I am not an entomologist, but that looks like many of the (called be some)

Seven of us took part in an evening of moth-ing at my home deck and porch
and at the organic farm across the lane.  We had 4 black lights to attract
moths. I also photographed a few moths Sunday night and will photograph a
few more tonight. This is our third Nat'l Moth week participation.  We had
well over 50 species, possibly as many as 100.  I will probably have time
to identify about half of them before I leave for Mexico on Friday.
Your corrections or IDs appreciated.  I'll be uploading additional moth
photos in the next two days.

From: Doug Allen <dougk4ly AT gmail.com>
Date: Thu, 3 Jul 2014 09:03:33 -0400
Jean Fontane and I met at Caesar Head, SC, yeserday morning and
butterflied from there on Route 276 to mile 412 on the Blue Ridge
Parkway.  We then headed south on the Parkway to mile 431, the higest
point on the Blue Ridge Parkway at 6047'.

Trichodezia albovittata - White-striped Black - Hodges #7430
were abundant on the parkway. We surely saw over 100 individuals and
probably well over 200 during that 19 miles, all above 4000'.  Our
sightings were in Transalvania, Heywood, and Jackson Counties, NC.

Habitat was not damp deciduous woodlands as described in BugGuide.
These moths are at the far southern edge of their range, possibly
unrecorded in Transylvania County, but I can't tell from the MPG map.

Beacause these moths were so abundant above 4000' elevation in NC, I
wonder if they may not occur at 3550' on Sasafras Mountain in SC which
is not far away.   They apparently have never been reported in SC.

Paul, the question marks are because of some glitch with my files and Picasa. 
For some reason, the random dash here and there is turned into a question mark. 
I do need to add 'tentative ID' to a bunch of my pics and that includes most of 
the Coleophora spp. 


I've been in contact with an expert on Coleophora and he said he's discovered 
that odds are for every described one you find, you'll find 2 that haven't been 
described.

Thanks for your kind words Pandl,

    Thanks for the leafhopper ID, too, incredible little critters.  I'll
update the moth and leafhopper info.
I looked up Bio Blitz to see what you'd done!   Sounds like something else
to add to our schedule for 2015.  We'll be doing National Moth Week again
this July from my house and the neighbor's organic farm next door.  We

Thanks Pandl,
   Checked Bug Guide and see they occur all the way south to where I live
in Spartanburg County, SC, but I haven't seen it there yet.

Tok a few more moth pics today and maybe will upload them tomorrow morning.
 My motel internet service here isn't the best.

I just uploaded some pics to my Flickr site-
https://www.flickr.com/photos/carolinabutterflies/

including this moth which I didn't find in a quick visit to MPG.
There were dozens along a bright lighted woodsy trail near Lake
Champlain about 70 miles south of Montreal.  Saw many more moths than
butterflies on a warm, sunny day.

Caught in sweep net on summit of Ceddar Mountain in Rockingham County, Mayo
River State Park.

Is it 2765 Apotomis deceptana, though 2768 A. removana appears to be a
better match but is not listed in NC.  Or maybe I'm barking up the wrong
genus....

Thanks for any help!

It could be but not long ago I found out that due to the use of DNA barcoding, 
it's been discovered that there are literally hundreds of undescribed species 
of Coleophora in North America so I'm calling most of what I see Coleophora sp. 
About the only one I'm sure of anymore is Coleophora mayrella.

I see that a lot of people get weird color tints from their MV and other UV

At Falls Lake State Recreation Area, Durham county NC this morning I got a

Very diagnostic!  3443.1 G. delineana is similar, so let me know if I am in

Hi Brian,

I think the first one is Renia, perhaps sobrialis.

The second one does have short palps, but I have never seen adspergillus
with such speckling despite the common name.

The closest I can get on one is 8375.97 – *Bleptina sp.* – Unidentified

That was my closest guess too, we had about a dozen and they were all dark
no mottling.  I'll see if Paul has a better photo.  Here are a couple
macros that should be easy but I'm getting down to the poor quality photos!

6344 a faded pale-marked angle maybe
