These seemed to be easy to find ( just a mild headache lol )...only two are found in NB.
I checked CNC for the others and they are not listed. Haven't checked the Annotated list yet.
Corrections welcomed :)
1.Eucosma ochroterminana - Buff-tipped Eucosma - Hodges#2929
CNC has it listed for NB and MPG has a dot.
2. Rolandylis maiana - Kearfott's Rolandylis Moth - Hodges#3837
3. Cochylis hospes - Banded Sunflower Moth - Hodges#3777
5. Unknown...thanks Stuart and Tony!! thought it might be Celypha cespitana - Celypha Moth - Hodges#2859
6. Eucosma tomonana - Aster-head Eucosma Moth - Hodges#2936..MFG has it in NB
Had to click 'like'... Iove them, Girl!! WTG, well done and great images. Congrats on a bunch of wee beauties!!!
Tony, thank you! Happy to nail at least three!!
I have dorsal shots of the last two that I will add. No lateral view of #4
Thanks a lot Joanne! I wouldn't have attempted these a couple of yrs. ago....
Wonderful images, Nancy! I get your #4 regularly in late summer every year and am convinced it is an Olethreutes but not at all sure what species. Even Jason Dombrowski won't hazard a guess. Your #5 is also familiar to me but it's ID isn't. LOL. I think your ID for #6 is correct. I get a few every summer.
So we will scratch #4 and 5 ! lol
Stuart and Tony...it's so time consuming to check them out, and I really appreciate your input.
#5 has a couple that are very similar....I really studied it closely.
I posted it on Moths of Eastern USA to see if anyone is familiar with it.
I don't know what is going on lately, but had another bunch of micros this morning too! One is a fancy twirler, can't wait to check it out later when I have the time. Have to put most on ice for 3-5 min. and they still walk around on the graph paper. lol
Will put dorsal and lateral views up, much easier to have both to id
I admit not to looking too closely at #6 last night. I remembered then that that Eucosma is a tough genus and there are a couple of look-alikes with those dorsal markings such as 3116 and its variations and 3203
But 2936 does look at good match.
