First moth of 2008. I.D. by Insects of Alberta here and also MPG :

This is a common early season species near aspens.

Moved from Pseudexentera.

Here's that address as a link
here. I'm going to leave it to someone more expert in moths than I am to confirm/deny ID, though.

Do you have an entomological background? Please fill out your bio page a little so we know what degree of expertise you're bringing to the table. Not to disparage you personally, but for anyone who is making IDs it helps everyone, especially editors who may be moving images on the strength of them, to know where they are coming from. : )

To be honest I don't really have a job yet, im only 12! All my I.Ds comes from looking through books and internet, I do seem to be able to remember any new species I find on websites. For example, in all the time I've been on the internet I can recognize alot of Lepidoptera species or at least genus/families from Europe, North/South America and Asia. I try to be outside as much as possible in suitable habitats to find more insects. I hope to create a book of insects once. How do you fill the bio page?

I just discovered dates on my camera photos this one was much earlier than I thought. I doubt any other species could be as "Early" as this one, there was still snow on the ground.

Click on "Your Account"
You'll see a link that says "edit user information". It takes you to the page anyone will see when they click on your name. The kind of information that you just provided here would be fine. We have other young members here who are regular contributors - age is certainly no barrier. : )

As far as any other species being this early, that's totally beyond my level of expertise I'm afraid. I don't even know what other spp. of moths might be confused with this.

sorry, duplicate comment
