Moved to Acrolophus walsinghami
Moved from Frass.

Tentative ID but the combination of the the "W" pattern and two small white spots appears to be distinctive.

Frassed
Moved from Tubeworm Moths.

 
2 things
1. Just to be clear, I wish more folks would frass old images that are redundant or are in such poor condition or low quality that future ID is unlikely. So thanks for cleaning house. But quality images like this which have not been identified should in my opinion be kept.

2. I'd like to add this to MPG. Any chance of getting it replaced with more room at the top and bottom?

Thanks!

 
Ok
i have no problem with keeping images if possibly useful.

Just getting rid of stuff I don’t really care for and primarily frassing well represented spp. in the guide.

I’ll try to locate original and square it up if I can. May only have these cropped images.

 
Please Keep
Jeff - I think you should consider going through all your unidentified moths that you recently frassed and put them back if they are in reasonably good condition. There is an Acrolophus paper in the works that might be eventually uses to ID this one.
