could you clean the specimen and re-shoot?
Moved from ID Request.

 
Sorry
I'll see what I can do.

 
no big deal; i just want to refer your post to an expert...
...but won't bother him unless the specimen looks presentable

meaning, if you're ok with just family, don't worry about it

 
Honestly
I felt guilty when I first submitted it because of the condition of the specimen. I'm glad you said something about it. Our morning Malaise trap collection is always full of moths and all of the specimens need a thorough cleaning. Family ID would be great. Thanks again.
