This group is difficult. Even in the new Wagner
he points out that the caterpillars in this group may be inseparable

 
Should I back it up a notch
to family? (The book is slated to arrive tomorrow!)

 
Wait till tomorrow and see what you think.
Though you may get lost in the book for a few days before you get back to this image :)

We guess just decide then how confident you are. We have moved many of the images from the genus page to a No Taxon Complex page. We may try to go back and reread the book and see if we can tackle those, but don't know if we will be able to do much :(

There are a couple on the genus page with adults attached and even those don't get ID'd!
