Had around 6 moths around 11pm.  This was the only one that didn't look familiar.  Would appreciate confirmation....there are others very similar, but not found in NB in May.

Looks good to me, Nancy.

Lovely image, Nancy! I wonder if this might not be The Half-wing Phigalea titea 196650 / 6658? Tony has had a couple already this spring but I've never seen one. Moths have been practically non-existent here so far!

As this is such a late Spring it seems a tad early for 6582; especially for way 'up north'.

6582 has a proportionally longer FW and is more colourful.

Stuart has nailed the ID.

Very, very tricky!!  I was searching for one that had the Median line touching the PM line.  6658 isn't supposed to have this, however, when I look at the images on MPG there are two that do.  Because of the longer FW, I see now that 6582 has more of a 'short and wide' shape.   Darn-it.  I thought I had a new one. 

Thank-you Joanne, Stuart and Tony.  I must say, I did enjoy looking for it.

The weekend looks promising for moth-ing....hope you get some soon Stuart :)
