Jim,thanks for digging up the info to get this down to species.

Group elevated to family rank
Added new Family Glaphyridae, moved image. Good shot. I'll have to check, but I'm guessing this is L. vulpina

 
Lichnanthe vulpina
is the only species listed on the University of New Hampshire checklist. I think it's OK to place it on species page.
