Nola ovilla - Hodges#8995 - Nola clethrae - Female
Marlton, Burlington County, New Jersey, USA
May 6, 2008
Size: Maybe around 12 mm?
Size is somewhat a guess of nose to wingtip. Came to the light at night. I'm just wondering if this is IDable or just plain Frass. Genus maybe?

Moved from Nola ovilla.

It is my understanding that only males in N. ovilla and clethrae can be reliably separated. The former has antennae fasciculate whereas the later have antennae that are pectinate. Also, ovilla is apparently known from only a very few examples. MPG will be moving all images of live Nola, previously identified as ovilla, to clethrae until new information becomes available.

Nola ovilla
Any ideas how these were IDed?

Looks like they never did that (6 years)
No surprise, this one is 7 years with no fix

Moved from Moths.

Looks like it might be Nola ovilla Lynn Scott photo at MPG but I'm not 100% sure.

I'll leave this one around and see what others think. I appreciate the help.

Nola ovilla looks good.
