Tortricid II - Archips semiferana

Tortricid II - Archips semiferana
West Farm, Turtle Lake, Barron County, Wisconsin, USA

Same species as the one I just posted?

Moved tentatively from Archips. Thanks, Ann. My only hesitation was that the apical third of the wings seemed constrastingly pale compared to the pattern on most BG images of that species. I do see a few BG specimens that have that characteristic, though.

John, I went through a spring when I had a number of these. They were very variable and confusing to me, but after that they kind of got a "look" to me. I see 4 tiny dark dots in both of your images, Sometimes they are not there and then sometimes they are little squares and as in Carl's picture they are kind of a darker slash.

Thanks for the add'l info.

I think so. A lighter version of . What were you thinking?

Moved from Tortricid Moths.
