Renia sp.? - Renia salusalis - female

Renia sp.? - Renia salusalis - Female
Block Island, Washington County, Rhode Island, USA

I think this may well be #8381 – Renia discoloralis based on MPG and BG images such as or . ID help much appreciated - no R. discoloralis have yet been confirmed for RI.

Moved tentatively
Moved from Renia. A little worn, but definitely a better match for this species.

Not sure
I think salusalis is possible. I've been working on the genus on BugGuide, and I can't tell females of discoloralis and salusalis apart in all cases.


Moved from ID Request.
