Aug 19 2017 Fredericton

Ran my trap for the 1st time in 10 days; need lizard food. Was not disappointed!About 2 doz Noctua pronuba took off when I opened the trap; managed to retrieve another 22 from inside. Will capture the escapees tonight.This is a super abundant, non-native, introduced species which is likely of negative benefit to our native moths; not to mention my lawn.See More

"I see some resemblance between yours and p519 but am not convinced yours is pronuba. They give the size as 30-35mm (it is a long-winged species); yours is significantly less. Also pronuba appear to have long pointed 'noses', yours are…"

"The wings are  much too short to be pronuba; also, too much wing pattern. So, what are they?? Dunno, but remind me of 11010 Lycophotia phyllophora"

"Your July 24 has to be contrasta; male antennae are perhaps the best separator, apart from flight season"

"MPG and BG certainly flawed. xylinoides: May-June, August-Septempber contrasta: mid-June to early August Genitalia distinct male antennae: 4-4.5 times as wide as width between the 'bristles' = xylinoides 3-3.5 as wide in contrasta black…"

"I've done a comparison of both contrasta and xylinoides on MPG and BG. The big difference I can see it the amt. of the silvery sheen and white outlines of orbicular and reniform spots. Besides the time line for each species, how DOES one tell…"
