Tentative Placement
Moved from ID Request.

Hal, years ago Maury Heimann identified a couple for me, but since then I have sent similar looking moths (both black and tan) to BOLD and they have been identified as Alpheias oculiferalis, but only a 98.2% match. The only other Alpheias Bin I could find was BOLD:AAH5073 which DOES have an identified specimen and it was from Sutton, Texas.

I keep looking for one more like my first one and saw a worn one last week that I collected to see what I thought. It was not a good example. I think this one has the stance of A. parvulalis. As far as I can tell BOLD does not have any A. parvulalis submitted.

 
Ann, Thanks for the detail
Ann,

Thanks for the details. I submitted one back in 2018 and it was uncertain then too. This one is better marked. I'll watch for another and send iy to you.

Hal
