INCURVARIIDAE 0181 Paraclemensia acerifoliella - Maple Leafcutter Moth

Another uncommon moth, and for me, not only a new family but also a new superfamily, Adeloidea (Fairy moths and kin). At first I thought it was a cross between a coleophorid and a scape moth; couldn't place it anywhere.INCURVARIIDAE 0181 Paraclemensia acerifoliella - Maple leafcutter mothMy observation, 2 June 2014 in the DU pond area, Fredericton, is first for BugGuide NB.

Hi Chris,
I applaud your suggestion for a group on moths! Would you like to add the group? I will certainly join, but I do not feel "up" to the level of being able to moderate it, although I can (and will) help with the technical (web-based) stuff.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for joining the dragonfly group! Although this site was originally called Birding New Brunswick, we definitely enjoy discussing all nature related topics that touch on nature in the Maritimes. If there is anything with regards to the function of the site in general you have questions about, there are lots here who are definitely happy to help. Like Bug Guide, we all all a bunch of volunteers trying to make sense of the natural world and still learning lots ourselves, but so far it has been a blast and has worked out very well. Enjoy!
