Sheesh, you and Lynette had this one nailed almost before I hit the submit button on the ID Request! :) Thanks as always.

(More WA moths coming in the next few days. I got a couple sessions in with the front porch light. Just sorting through them now.)

lks moth wa :)
give comparable image under Small Magpie.

Ok, ok, already. I *know* that's why we put the nice codes in our descriptors, and it would have been *easy* to ID this guy quickly. I forgot. I was in a hurry. I had relatives visiting (I really did). My car broke down (not really). It's not my fault!

Just so you know: I just posted 5 leafhoppers for Andy to check in the morning, and I checked 'em ALL against yours before posting 'em.

just giving you a hard time...
wait until you post one asking for an ID that you've already ID'd before. I've done that numerous times.

to suggest such a thing!
Ask for an ID for something I'd already had IDed?? What a silly idea. Um...I'd *never* do that...ever. (About a month and a half ago, thank you). Which is why I always use our descriptors and check my *own* critters as well as yours before I ask! :)

Thanks again, btw, for all the help, and for getting me going on the *really* is useful no matter what I complain about or how often I may or may not seem to check 'em! :)
