Ragweed Borer - Epiblema strenuana

Ragweed Borer - Epiblema strenuana
Milton, Massachusetts, USA
June 8, 2005
Size: 4mm

Moved, Epiblema strenuana
Moved from Eucosmini.

Moved from Tortricid Moths.

Move to Orthotaenia
We moved all these Orthotaenia-like moths to the genus Orthotaenia in the hopes that by grouping them there an expert may find it easier to sort them all out.

You've been busy
Thanks for all the work you've been doing sorting out lots of my pictures.

similar genera
There are certainly more than one genus here, but we figured if we got them together we could ask Dennis Profant to look through them all at once. We understand that the Tortricids are not readily identifiable from pictures, but we would just ask him to do the best he could. Then we could move them to their proper place.
