How about

I may have missed these in your list but what about...

Another & Thanks
Green moths seems to almost be too large a sub-group. Anyway, perhaps another candidate could be "Comstock's Sallow Hodges# 10008 - Feralia comstocki" under the Owlets.

J&J: I have found your abstracting and grouping by color very useful in the past and have often wished that BG had an easily accessible "by prominent feature" page referencing thumbnails of such groupings for those of us who, below Order and the more common families, don't always know which way to turn for a preliminary ID.

Thanks, all
